Abstract


A 12-year-old spayed female domestic shorthair cat was evaluated for a 3-week history of abdominal distension. Chyloabdomen secondary to pancreatic carcinoma was diagnosed. The cat was palliatively managed using rutin and a low-fat diet. The etiology, diagnosis and management of chyloabdomen are discussed.

Keywords: Chyloabdomen, Lymphangiography, Pancreatic carcinoma
