Abstract

Two related Sphinx cats, the mother and her daughter, showed pruritic maculae and pigmented papules, which correspond to those of urticaria pigmentosa in humans. The skin lesions in both cases were juvenile onset, and histopathological examination revealed diffuse infiltration of well-differentiated mast cells at the dermis. The lesions were resolved with antihistamines.
