Abstract

AN apparently healthy six-year-old neutered male, domestic shorthair cat was presented for routine revaccination and subsequently returned with a subcutaneous lump behind the jaw. No lesions were present in the mouth and the rectal temperature was 39 degrees C. Treatment with cephalexin (Ceporex; Mallinckrodt) did not improve the clinical condition of the animal and the mass was removed and potentiated sulphonamidesprescribed. The wound healed without complications but eight months later a swelling appeared on the right side of the neck. This tissue was removed and sent for histopathological examination which revealed a granulomatous reaction with many intracellular acid-fast organisms present within macrophages. There was no evidence of lymphoid tissue. Within three weeks the cat developed another mass:in the region of the right prescapular lymph node. Surgical removal was attempted but, because of extensive fibrosis and poorly defined margins, excision was' incomplete. Histopathological examination of the tissue revealed the mass to be of lymphoid origin with extensive replacement of the lymph node by fibrosis and macrophages laden with acid-fast organisms.
