3 Scopus citations


In hyperadrenocorticism in the dog, cutaneous lesions may include alopecia, thin, hypotonic skin, hyperpigmentation, comedones, calcinosis cutis, secondary bacterial and fungal infections, and demodicosis. Skin lesions affecting only the face have not been reported in reviews of hyperadrenocorticism, nor has the disease been included in the differential diagnoses of facial dermatoses. This report involves 4 dogs with hyperadrenocorticism in which cutaneous signs were limited to the face.
