ORTIZ ALVAREZ, José Fernando. Diffuse Lymphocytic Lymphoma in a Feline's Ileum: Clinical and Pathologic Report. Rev. Med. Vet. [online]. 2015, n.30, pp.117-127. ISSN 0122-9354.

The case of a domestic, shorthaired male cat, neutered, of three and a half years of age, with a current health plan that is presenting weight loss and digestive signology is presented. After performing the necessary diagnostic tests, an intestinal mass was found and it tested positive for viral feline leukemia; after the diagnosis, and following the request of the owners, the cat was euthanized. Following the necropsy and the histopathology results, it was found that the intestinal mass was a diffuse lymphocytic lymphoma, presumably of B cells with metastases in mesenteric lymph nodes and the liver.

Keywords : felines; lymphocytic lymphoma; vomit; weight loss; viral feline leukemia.
