A Clinical Case from the Archives : 23/11/2006

This picture was sent to me by a concerned colleague – what do you think is going on in this cat’s upper eyelid and what can be done to ameliorate the condition?

Simon, the referring vet is more worried and so am I! A few days has resulted in this substantial worsening in the situation. I thought these looked a little like the pyogranulomas we sometimes see in dog’s eyelids, maybe crossed with the lipogranulomatous lesions in cat associated with Meibomian gland distention. But this is far more severe – what should we do? I’ve started the cat on hot compresses as well as the antibiotics and anti-inflammatories its already being given.
