Feline small cell intestinal lymphoma is more prevalent than inflammatory bowel disease (IBD); however, the disorders cannot be differentiated clinically, biochemically, or via ultrasound. Differentiation of small cell lymphoma from IBD is made on the basis of immunohistochemistry and clonality (PARR). The prognosis for most cats with small cell intestinal lymphoma is very good and medical therapy consisting of prednisolone, chlorambucil, and cyanocobalamin is frequently used for cats with IBD and small cell lymphoma. This case-based presentation will highlight the rational diagnostic approach to cats with chronic enteropathies and will also highlight the options available when financial resources preclude a confirmatory diagnosis via intestinal biopsy.
