A Clinical Case from the Archives : 23/02/2008

What is wrong with this poor little ferret (its intense smell and tendency to bite excluded!!) What diagnostic tests and treatment might you use?

There is bilateral nicitating membrane protrusion which might make you think it had nictitans gland prolapse, but actually this is associated with exophthalmos. At the time of first presentation these were the only signs of disease in the ferret but within a week multiple lymphadenopathy, splenomagaly and hepatomegaly supervened, confirming our initial concern that this was associated with lymphosarcoma.
