Abstract

A 7-year-old spayed female Somali-cross cat was admitted with a 4-week history of anorexia, vomiting, weight loss, and lethargy. The cat was diagnosed with hepatic lipidosis. With intensive care and nutritional support via a nasogastric feeding tube for 3 weeks, the clinical signs of hepatic lipidosis were improved. However, skin lesions were found in the left and right scapular regions during the treatment that were suspected to be due to feline skin fragility syndrome (FSFS). Intensive wound healing therapy with granulated sugar, laser therapy, and a surgical flap was conducted. Skin lesions improved uneventfully without other clinical signs or recurrence of any skin lesion for a year. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a good prognosis in a hepatic disorder and concurrent FSFS.
