Generalized demodicosis with concurrent diabetes mellitus was diagnosed in 2 cats. Both cats had generalized alopecia and a bilateral brown aural exudate. Mites were seen microscopically in skin scrapings and ear swab specimens. Histologic examination of the skin showed the follicular orientation of the mites. Abnormal results on oral dexamethasone suppression tests, clinical findings, and bilateral adrenal hyperplasia found on necropsy of one of the cats suggested concurrent hyperadrenocorticism.
