Bilateral stifle joint OCD in a cat
Osteochondrosis dissecans (OCD) is a common problem in young dogs especially in those of large or giant breeds. Cats are not predisposed to develop this problem, but it is worth to be considered at least as a differential diagnosis in lameness of growing cats, as this very informative care report demonstrates.

A 9-month-old, castrated male, domestic shorthaired cat was presented for progressive right hind-limb lameness.

A diagnosis of osteochondritis dissecans of the lateral femoral condyle was made based on radiographs and physical examination, and was confirmed by right lateral stifle arthrotomy.

The cartilage flap was removed, and the underlying bone was curetted.

Seven months later, the cat was sound on the right leg but developed a left hind-limb lameness.

A similar lesion was found in the left leg and was treated identically.

Fourteen months after presentation, the cat was sound on both hind limbs.
