What's Your Diagnosis?

  • Segmental small intestinal dilation with multifocal areas of accumulation of granular mineral opaque content within the small intestines.
  • Dx: Intestinal leiomyositis, causing repeated pseudo-obstructions. This is a rarely reported, suspected autoimmune disorder that affects the intestinal motility. This disease is regarded as unresponsive to medical management, and is associated with a grave prognosis, according to one case series involving six dogs (Zacuto et al., 2016).
