Abstract

A study was carried out on 19 cats which had been primarily presentedfor neurological signs caused by the feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) virus. Seven animals only showed central nervous system (CNS) involvement without symptoms of a systemic disease. The main neurological signs were depression, tetraparesis, head tilt, nystagmus, and intention tremor. Neuroanatomical localization was multifocal in the majorityof the cases, with brain stem involvement in all but one. Blood biochemical changes mainly consisted of total protein elevation and hypergammaglobulinemia. Serum antibodies against FIP virus, detected through indirect fluorescence procedure, showed high titer in only 58% of the animals tested. The test was negative in two cats. CSF analysis was consistently characterized by a high protein content : and marked pleocytosis which primarily consisted of neutrophils. We concluded that biochemical blood changes and antibody testing have a limited value in diagnosing the neurological form of FIP, while CSF analysis is essential for a correct diagnosis.
