Resumen

LOBETTI, R G. Hypercalcaemia in a dog with primary hypothyroidism. J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2011, vol.82, n.4, pp. 242-243. ISSN 2224-9435.

A 7-year old female beagle was evaluated for symptomatic hypercalcaemia and primary hypothyroidism. Clinical findings were typical for hypothyroidism. Plasma parathyroid hormone was low and obvious causes for the hypercalcaemia were ruled out by means of abdominal ultrasonography, ultrasonography of the parathyroid glands, survey thoracic radiographs, and fine needle aspirate cytology of the spleen, liver, and peripheral lymph nodes. Treatment with thyroxine resulted in resolution of the hypercalcaemia after approximately 9 weeks of therapy. This is the 1st report of primary adult-onset hypothyroidism associated with symptomatic hypercalcaemia in a dog.

Palabras clave : calcium; canine; total T4; TSH.
