Hemotropic Mycoplasmosis in a Cat: First Case in Southeastern Anatolia Region, Turkey

Canberk Balikci, Erdem Gulersoy.

Abstract
The material of this case report was consisted of a 5-year-old female British Shorthair cat brought to Harran University, Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine with complaints of weakness, loss of appetite and stupor for a few days. The physical examination revealed prolonged capillary refilling time (5 sec), pallor and icteric mucous membranes, low body temperature (37.2 C), hyperpnea (64 breath per minute) and bradycardia (96 beats per minute). In the haemogram, anemia (3.4 M/mm3) with decreased haematoctrit (17.6 %), mean corpuscular hemoglobin (2 pg), mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (3.9 g/dl), platelet (35 m/mm3) and haemoglobin (0.7 g/dl) along with severe leucocytosis (50.2 m/mm3); in microscopic examination of blood smear, hemotropic mycoplasmas were determined. After the treatment involving tetracycline (10 mg / kg twice a day, oral), prednisolone (1 mg / kg twice a day, oral) and iron preparations (50 mg / kg once a day, intramuscular) administrations, clinical symptoms disappeared and hemogram parameters returned to normal reference range. This report is the first case of hemotropic mycoplasmosis identified in a cat in the Southeastern Anatolia Region of Turkey, and as a result of diagnostic methods and treatment protocol performed in the case, it was concluded that hemotropic mycoplasma should be considered in the etiology of diseases associated with anemia and icterus.

Key words: Cat, Hemotropic mycoplasmosis, Icterus, Southeastern Anatolia
