Infectious of feline 1 A challenging diagnosis; feline infectious peritonitis



Infectious of feline 1 A challenging diagnosis; feline infectious peritonitis



Veteriner Fakultesi Dergisi, Uludag Universitesi: 1 2, 11-17



Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) is a systemic disease induced by virulent mutant forms of Feline Coronavirus (FCoV) and is a major infectious cause of mortality in young cats. This virus is a mutation of the Feline Enteric Coronavirus (FECV) that is either non-pathogenic or causes only mild intestinal disease. Those two strains can not be distinguished from one another morphologically or antigenically. This is what makes FIP diagnosis so challenging.
