Nasopharyngeal polyp in a 10-month-old cat
A ten month old female spayed domestic longhair cat presented with a chief complaint of progressive respiratory distress and recurrent upper respiratory tract infections. Exam findings indicated a feline nasopharyngeal polyp. This paper explores the etiology, diagnosis and treatment of feline nasopharyngeal polyps with a focus on treatment by private practitioners and prevention of recurrence. Recent studies indicate that simple traction-avulsion of feline nasopharyngeal polyps followed by an anti-inflammatory course of prednisolone is a very reasonable first line of treatment that is easily performed by the private practitioner.
