This week’s case is a 3-year-old domestic long haired cat with suspected trauma. Post your interpretations in the comments section.
FindingsABDOMEN: A lateral survey radiograph of the abdomen demonstrates a urinary catheter placed within the urinary bladder. There is soft tissue mottling of the subcutaneous tissues and swelling of the left hind limb as well as the ventral abdomen. There is soft tissue opacity in the retroperitoneal space; however, the peritoneal detail is normal.
URETHROGRAM: 10 mls of iodinated contrast medium was administered into the urinary bladder through the catheter. There is leakage of contrast from the pelvic urethra into the subcutaneous tissues of the hind limb and the retroperitoneal space and perineum.
