ABSTRACT: Between October 2003 and May 2004, seven cats were diagnosed with severe and extensive hypertrophic osteopathy of the appendicular skeleton without detectable underlying causes. All cats showed similar clinical signs of pain with progressive lameness of the limbs. One cat died shortly after presentation, whereas conditions of the others resolved after medical treatment and a change in diet. Regression of the bone lesions was observed radiographically in all surviving six cases.
