Central Cushing's Disease
Central Cushing’s disease in a cat.
No trouble finding the adrenals on this feline as our SonoPath collaborator and fellow Dip. ABVP, Dr. Doug Casey of English Bay Ultrasound Services in Vancouver, BC, Canada, shows us in this SonoPath case of the month. Now we bring you a cat with central Cushing’s and, of course, a little lipidosis and pancreatitis to round the clinical profile in this patient. In October 2011 we brought you a Cushing’s cat with an invasive adrenal mass that you may compare this case to from our past cases of the month line-up. Also check out Doug’s folder of utility medicine full of things that are easy and for practical use in small animal medicine that is now live with the rest of our specialty folders.
Sonogram (ADR): Altan
History (Kohmescer): A10-year-old SF Burmese cat was presented for evaluation of possible Cushing’s disease as there was chronic skin disease, hyperglycemia, and glucosuria but normal fructosamine.
