Abstract

A two-year-old, female, domestic short-haired cat was presented with visual impairment, tetraparesis, depression, head tilt and nystagmus. Serum and CSF were positive for coronavirus antibody and hydrocephalus secondary to feline infectious peritonitis was diagnosed based on clinical, laboratory and computed tomography findings. Medical treatment was not effective. This report presents a case of hydrocephalus in a cat suspected to be secondary to feline infectious peritonitis.
