Abstract

A 20-month-old castrated male Korean shorthair cat was presented with a 3-week history of intermittent vomiting and anorexia, absolute erythrocytosis, and elevated erythropoietin levels. A diagnosis of splenic hemangiosarcoma was made by histopathology and immunohistochemical identification of factor VIII. Paraneoplastic erythrocytosis caused by a splenic hemangiosarcoma in a cat is described.
