Abstract

An 18-month-old, Scottish Fold with severe lameness and pain in the fore- and hind-limbs was diagnosed as Scottish Fold osteochondrodysplasia based on radiography showing mis-shapened phalanges, bone formation around the tarsal and metatarsal joints, joint space narrowing, and ankylosis. Although computed tomography (CT) is not considered a primary method for examining Scottish Fold osteochondrodysplasia, CT was undertaken in this case to investigate the cause of pain and reluctant ambulation in the forelimbs. CT showed immaturely ossified bone proliferation in the carpal bones. CT-based multiplanar reconstruction can reveal the anatomic relationship between the bone lesion and the joint in various directions.
