Multiple views of the thorax were obtained. There is a mild bronchial
pattern with faint calcification of the bronchial walls. There is
slight cardiac enlargement with the heart traversing more than two
intercostal spaces in the lateral view.
Radiographic findings are most likely due to mild feline asthma
causing the clinical signs described. Infectious bronchitis and
fungal disease from Cryptococcus would be less likely. The presence
of early hypertrophic cardiomyopathy cannot be completely excluded
with the radiographic appearance of the heart.
Symptomatic therapy for feline asthma could be initiated as clinically
indicated. Echocardiography would be recommended to more accurately
assess the heart.
