Lupoid dermatosis of the German short-haired pointer may be a genodermatosis, although the number of cases reported is low. The disease occurs in young dogs. There is no sex predisposition. Until now the disease has only been consistently described in the German short-haired pointer. Diagnosis can be made by clinical examination together with histopathological examination of skin biopsies. The prognosis is usually poor, but fatty acid and symptomatic treatment should be attempted.
