Today’s case is a 4 year old female domestic short haired cat. Take a look at these thoracic radiographs and post your findings in the comments section.
There is moderate generalized cardiomegaly with a “valentine” shape on the DV projection. The pulmonary parenchyma and the vasculature size is unremarkable. Within the viewable abdomen, there are mineral densities within the cranial dorsal abdomen.
Moderate cardiomegaly without evidence of congestive heart failure at this time. Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy should be considered. An echocardiogram is recommended.
The mineralization within the cranial dorsal abdomen may represent mineralized adrenal glands which can be an incidental finding in cats.
Severe hypertrophic cardiomyopathy
