복강 내 종괴 촉진 및 구토, 식욕부진, 발열, 체중 감소, 수면시간 증가를 보이는 한 마리의 고양이가 서울대학교 부속 동물병원에 내원하였다. 신체검사, 혈액검사와 더불어 영상학적 검사가 진행되었다. 복부 초음파, CT 검사를 통해 소장분절과 연결된 종괴가 확인되었으며, 종괴에 대한 세포학적 검사 결과 소화기 림프종으로 잠정 진단되었으며 이에 따른 항암치료가 이뤄졌다. 항암치료가 진행되는 동안 증상은 호전되지 않았고, 결국 항암치료 중단 6일 후 폐사하였다. 부검이 이뤄졌으며 최종적으로 병변은 조직병리학적 검사를 통해 고양이 전염성 복막염으로 확진하였다.
A 2-year-old, intact male, Persian exotic cat, weighing 2 kg with a history of a palpated abdominal mass was admitted to Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital, Seoul National University. On routine complete blood count (CBC) and serum biochemical analyses, there were anemia and 0.45 of albumin to globulin ratio. A feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) virus antibody test kit was negative. Radiography, ultrasonography and computed tomography (CT) were performed. A markedly enlarged abdominal mass was found. On cytologic examination of this mass, it was diagnosed as alimentary lymphoma or pyogranulomatous inflammation. Chemotherapeutic treatment for intestinal lymphoma was provided for several weeks, but the mass size was increased and clinical signs were not improved. The cat died six days after discontinuing chemotherapy. On postmortem examination, the definitive diagnosis was FIP. This case describes a cat with FIP in which an abdominal tumor had been suspected clinically.
