37,X/38,XY mosaicism in a cryptorchid Bengal cat with Müllerian duct remnants


Balogh, Orsolya; Berger, Alice; Pienkowska-Schelling, A; Willmitzer, Florian; Grest, Paula; Janett, Fredy; Schelling, Claude; Reichler, Iris (2015). 37,X/38,XY mosaicism in a cryptorchid Bengal cat with Müllerian duct remnants. Sexual Development, 9(6):327-332.

Abstract

A 23-month-old tomcat was referred to our clinic because of male behavioral problems, cryptorchidism, and an undefined intra-abdominal organ resembling a uterus. Ultrasonography and computed tomography showed 2 fluid-filled tubular structures dorsolaterally to the bladder and connected to the pelvic urethra. The cat was castrated, and the tubular structures were surgically removed. Histology identified them as Müllerian duct remnants. The testes were hypoplastic, the epididymes and deferent ducts were normal. Cytogenetic analyses revealed the presence of a mosaic 37,X/38,XY karyotype which explains the clinical findings.
