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.

The expression of Vitamin D receptors in dogs
There is growing evidence linking low blood vitamin D concentration to numerous diseases in people and in dogs. Vitamin D influences cellular function by signaling through the vitamin D receptor (VDR). Little is known about which non-skeletal tissues express the VDR or how inflammation influences its expression in the dog.
The objectives of this recently online published study were to define which non-skeletal canine tissues express the VDR and to investigate expression in inflamed small intestine.
