First diagnosed extranodal conjunctival Hodgkin`s-like lymphoma in a cat
A very interesting case report starting with a patient showing the common and non-specific clinical sign conjunctivitis. But it was only unilateral and already lasting for 4 months - and the popliteal lymph node was swollen...

A seven-year-old female spayed Domestic Short-haired cat was brought for examination following a four-month history of conjunctivitis in the right eye.

The superior palpebral conjunctiva was diffusely swollen and firm, displacing the right globe ventrally and preventing full closure of the eyelids.

The right popliteal lymph node was enlarged as were several other peripheral lymph nodes.

An incisional biopsy of the conjunctival swelling revealed a lymphoid neoplasm, the cellular make up of which suggested features of feline Hodgkin`s-like lymphoma.

Although the neoplasm was poorly responsive to standard chemotherapeutic protocols for lymphoma, radiation therapy rapidly reduced its size.

Three years following the initial diagnosis, there has been no recurrence of the conjunctival neoplasm.

To the authors` knowledge, there are no previous reports of extranodal or adnexal (conjunctiva, eyelid, orbit) Hodgkin`s-like lymphoma in the veterinary literature.

Emphysematous gastritis in dogs and catsmembers
Gastric pneumatosis is an imaging finding defined as the presence of gas foci in the gastric wall. In humans, this imaging feature can result from one of two separate clinical entities: life‐threatening emphysematous gastritis or clinically benign gastric emphysema. This retrospective case series study describes the clinical and imaging features in five animals diagnosed with spontaneous gastric pneumatosis without gastric dilatation‐volvulus.
