Akhtardanesh B, Shojaei B, Kheirandish R, Askari N., Feline parvovirus and cerebellar hypoplasia, Onl J Vet Res., 27 (4): 212-216, 2023. Signs, pathology and imaging of intrauterine parvoviral infection and cerebellar hypoplasia in a 45 day old female kitten are reported. We noted, ataxia, dysmetria, tremors and by tomography radiolucent areas in cerebellum. Authors suspected congenital panleukopenia and animals was euthanized. Microscopy revealed prominent cerebellar hypoplasia, segmental loss of the external and internal granular layer and reduced purkinje cells. Amplification of parvovirus DNA confirmed our diagnosis.
