Hyposomatotropism in the mature dog: discussion of 22 cases



Hyposomatotropism in the mature dog: discussion of 22 cases



Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association 22(4): 467-473



Adult-onset hyposomatotropism (growth hormone responsive dermatosis or pseudo-Cushing's syndrome) was diagnosed in 22 dogs. Male Pomeranians, Chow Chows, and Keeshonds were found to be predisposed. The dermatosis was characterized by symmetrical trunkal alopecia, with or without hyperpigmentation, in otherwise healthy dogs. Diagnosis was confirmed by the measurement of plasma growth hormone levels before and after the intravenous administration of xylazine.
