Resumo

Inflammatory bowel disease is a term that designates a set of pathologies mediated by the immune system. The objective of this work is to present a case report that shows the intestinal inflammatory bowel disease in a feline of 12 years. The animal had a history of chronic vomiting and progressive weight loss. Complete blood count, biochemistry and ultrasound were requested, showing anemia, leukocytosis with neutrophilia, normal biochemistry and ultrasonographic appearance compatible with advanced inflammatory disease or neoplasia. A supportive treatment was prescribed until exploratory laparotomy and incisional biopsy were performed. Reactive mesentery, lymphadenomegaly, severe thickening of the jejunal walls were found. Histopathology revealed a plasmacytic infiltrate in lamina propria and a greater amount of intraepithelial lymphocytes. It was prescribed a treatment with prednisolone, cobalamin supplementation and hypoallergenic diet. After 21 days, there was remission of clinical signs.(AU)
