Eosinophilic granuloma in the lower surface of the tongue of a cat

Karagiannis G, Karittevlis D, Stergidou M, Diaouris X, Eosinophilic granuloma in the lower surface of the tongue of a cat, Online J Vet Res, 12 (2):9-14, 2008. A 1.5 year-old, domestic, short haired, neutered, male cat with a recent history of otodectic mange was brought to a private clinic. The owner had complained about the existence of several nodules in the lower surface of the tongue. Routine laboratory investigation revealed a mild eosinophilia. The histopathologic examination was consistent with eosinophilic granuloma. This is the first paper to report such an uncommon location for an eosinophilic granuloma in a cat. Some association with an ear mite parasitosis is proposed.
Key words: cat; eosinophilic granuloma; otodectic mange; tongue
