Clinical case of ovarian remnant syndrome in a cat


Ovarian remnant syndrome (ORS) has been monitored in a cat, which presents in the form of estrus, 8 months after ovariohysterectomy (OVH). This is an iatrogenic condition as a result of the complexity of the OVH content in 22% of all complications after neutering in small animals. Emphasis is put on the anatomical predispositions for the frequency of occurrence of the ORS in cats compared with dogs. They are described through a detailed observation of the reasons for the presence and localisationlocalization of the residual ovarian tissue, variable clinical manifestations, possibilities for diagnosis and treatment of the ORS in small animals. Almost every time this syndrome is combined with uterine stump pyometra, manifested with vomiting, allotriphagy, severe pain syndrome, leucocytosis and lymphocytosis. Through this clinical case we hope to draw the attention of veterinary surgeons to the possibility of frequent emergence and quick identification and adequate treatment of ORS in cats.
