Abstract

A nine-year-old female sphinx cat was brought to us with pruritic maculopapular eruption. Skin histopathology revealed findings similar to human urticaria pigmentosa. For the first two weeks, the cat had been treated with predonisolone and an anti-histamic. Further, cyclosporine, an immunosuppressive, was initiated and gradually replaced with predonisolone. As the clinical signs lessened, cyclosporine was reduced and stopped completely 13 months later. About two months after all the therapy was completed, the cat was still in good health with no recurrence.
