Editor’s note: Intrathoracic abscessation and mediastinitis that is not associated with pre-existing pulmonary or pleural lesions is uncommon and poorly documented in veterinary medicine. The objective of this retrospective study was to report the clinical, imaging, and surgical findings associated with caudal mediastinal paraoesophageal abscesses (CMPA) in dogs, and the outcomes of surgical treatment. Seven cases that were managed at Davies Veterinary Specialists (Higham Gobion, UK) between 2005 and 2010 were included in the study.
