Uterine adenocarcinoma with abdominal metastases in an ovariohysterectomised female cat

By C. Anderson and K. Pratschke


An adenocarcinoma of the uterine stump with abdominal metastases is described in a 12-year-old incompletely ovariohysterectomised female Domestic Short Haired (DSH) cat. At the time of presentation the adenocarcinoma had metastasised to the right peri-renal lymph node, the abdominal aorta, and the right ureter, resulting in the formation of a large cystic structure. This had compressed and displaced surrounding structures including the abdominal vena cava and the right kidney, and formed multiple adhesions to the body wall and adjacent abdominal structures. Metastatic extension to the aorta had resulted in its regression into a 2mm diameter non-pulsatile vessel
