Ocular manifestations of a metastatic pulmonary adenocarcinoma in a cat.J Am Vet Med Assoc. 1990 Aug 01; 197(3):372-4.JA
A primary pulmonary bronchogenic adenocarcinoma originating from an intramediastinal accessory lung was diagnosed in a 14.5-year-old cat. The cat had been admitted because of a cloudy right eye. Physical examination revealed a thin cat with severe iritis, aqueous flare, and a fibrin clot in the anterior chamber of the right eye. Right fundic examination revealed bullous retinal detachment superior to the optic disc. Euthanasia and necropsy were requested when FeLV test results were positive. Metastatic neoplastic cells similar to those of the primary tumor were detected in the choroid, ciliary body, and ciliary processes of the right eye. Ciliary and iridic stromal necrosis attributable to neoplastic embolization of uveal vessels had led to severe uveitis. Foci of metastasis were also in the heart, kidney, and cerebral meninges.
