Relapsing polychondritis in a cat

, : Relapsing polychondritis in a cat. Journal of the American Animal Hospital Association 28(3): 203-206

An adult Siamese cat was presented for evaluation of bilateral curling of the ear margins. On physical examination no direct evidence for sources of chronic irritation could be found. Biopsies of the ear margin were compatible with histopathological changes described in humans and a cat for relapsing polychondritis. The aetiology of the condition in the cat (an immune-mediated disease against collagen in man) is not known.
