Abstract

A 2-year-old neutered male Bengal cat presented with a 6-month history of weight loss and chronic vomiting. An abdominal ultrasound revealed increased thickness of the pylorus and ascending duodenum with concurrent enlargement of the mesenteric lymph nodes. Histologically, branching and anastomosing trabecular pattern of dense collagen was the characteristic feature, and large populations of spindle cells were also observed. These large spindle-shaped cells were positive for smooth muscle actin and vimentin on immunohistochemical examination. Based on these findings, the cat was diagnosed with feline gastrointestinal eosinophilic slcerosing fibroplasia (FGESF), and immunosuppressive therapy was initiated immediately. Unfortunately, the cat’s condition deteriorated despite treatment; the cat died 56 days after initiation of therapy. This is the first report of FGESF in South Korea.
