Objectives The objectives of this study were to review signalment, clinical signs and laboratory features in a large number of naturally occurring cases of feline infectious peritonitis (FIP), and to evaluate potential changes in diagnostic criteria for FIP and compare findings in cats with and without effusion. Methods The medical records of 231 cats with confirmed FIP that presented to the Clinic of Small Animal Medicine of the Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich, Germany, were reviewed… Expand
A retrospective study of clinical and laboratory features and treatment on cats highly suspected of feline infectious peritonitis in Wuhan, China
TLDR
The study highlights the diverse range of clinical manifestations by clinicians in diagnosing this potentially fatal disease and suggests GS-441524 and GC376 were efficient for the treatment of FIP-suspected cats. Expand
Epidemiological data and a score-based study of renal, hepatic and cerebral lesions in feline infectious peritonitis
TLDR
It is proposed that necrosis be considered as an important lesion associated with FIP that should be included in the histopathological diagnosis of this disease. Expand
Retrospective analysis of pleural effusion in cats
TLDR
CD and neoplasia were the most common causes for feline pleural effusion and age, liver enzymes, as well as cell count, protein and glucose levels in the effusion can aid in the investigation of underlying aetiologies. Expand
Diagnosis of Feline Infectious Peritonitis: A Review of the Current Literature
TLDR
This review focuses on all important steps every veterinary practitioner has to deal with and new diagnostic tests that can be considered when encountering a cat with suspected FIP with the aim to establish a definitive diagnosis. Expand
Investigation of the relation between feline infectious peritonitis and retroviruses in cats
TLDR
It was concluded that the prevalence of FIP infection can be reduced by paying attention to FIV and FeLV vaccination in multiple-cat sheltering environments in young cats. Expand
Diagnosis of feline infectious peritonitis: Update on evidence supporting available tests
  • S. Tasker
  • Medicine
  • Journal of feline medicine and surgery
  • 2018
TLDR
This review provides a comprehensive overview of how to approach the diagnosis of FIP, focusing on the tests available to the veterinary practitioner and recently published evidence supporting their use. Expand
Frequency of electrophoretic changes consistent with feline infectious peritonitis in two different time periods (2004–2009 vs 2013–2014)
TLDR
The frequency of electrophoretic abnormalities in cats with FIP decreased in recent years, independently of the technique employed, and this altered frequency may decrease the diagnostic accuracy of serum protein electrophoresis for FIP. Expand
ALTERAÇÕES LABORATORIAIS E ANATOMOPATOLÓGICAS DA PERITONITE INFECCIOSA FELINA PREDOMINANTEMENTE EFUSIVA EM
TLDR
Clinicians should consider the possibility of infection by FIP in cats with a wide range of clinical signs, and request the adequate laboratory tests that must be accurately interpreted in order to make an early diagnosis. Expand
Polyprenyl Immunostimulant Treatment of Cats with Presumptive Non-Effusive Feline Infectious Peritonitis In a Field Study
TLDR
Treatment with Polyprenyl Immunostimulant shows promise in the treatment of dry form FIP, but a controlled study will be needed to verify the benefit. Expand
An update on feline infectious peritonitis
TLDR
Validation of established techniques and advances in novel techniques have improved the toolkit with which clinicians can diagnose FIP, though diagnosis can still be challenging and test results must be interpreted in the context of signalment, history and clinical signs. Expand

[Clinical symptoms and diagnosis of feline infectious peritonitis].
TLDR
Body effusions from 197 cats and blood serum samples from 252 cats, where Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) was part of the differential diagnosis, were analysed and the rivalta test was highly sensitive for FIP. Expand
Clinicopathological findings associated with feline infectious peritonitis in Sydney, Australia: 42 cases (1990–2002)
TLDR
Some aspects of the epidemiology and clinical manifestations of feline infectious peritonitis appear different to the disease encountered in Europe and North America, most notably the over‐representation of specific breeds and the presence of immune‐mediated haemolytic anaemia. Expand
Laboratory Changes Consistent with Feline Infectious Peritonitis in Cats from Multicat Environments
TLDR
Results from cats with symptoms consistent with FIP living in the same colonies demonstrated that the use of internal ranges rarely affected the possibility to correctly diagnose the disease in Cats with symptoms suggestive of FIP. Expand
Risk factors for feline infectious peritonitis in Australian cats
TLDR
This study provides further evidence that FIP is a disease primarily of young cats and that significant breed and sex predilections exist in Australia and opens further avenues to investigate the role of genetic factors in FIP. Expand
Epidemiology of feline infectious peritonitis among cats examined at veterinary medical teaching hospitals.
TLDR
It is indicated that FIP continues to be a clinically important disease in North America and that sexually intact male cats may be at increased risk, and spayed females at reduced risk, for FIP. Expand
Prevalence of feline infectious peritonitis in specific cat breeds☆
TLDR
Sexual intact cats and purebreed cats were significantly more likely to be diagnosed with FIP; males and young cats also had a higher prevalence of disease. Expand
Clinicopathological findings and disease staging of feline infectious peritonitis: 51 cases from 2003 to 2009 in Taiwan
TLDR
The packed cell volume, bilirubin, AST, potassium, and sodium levels were established to predict disease staging and survival time and indicate that the cat can survive for at least 2 weeks, less than 2 weeks and less than 3 days, respectively. Expand
Laboratory profiles in cats with different pathological and immunohistochemical findings due to feline infectious peritonitis (FIP)
TLDR
The results suggest that differences in pathological findings might depend on different reactive patterns to the FCoVs. Expand
Comparison of Different Tests to Diagnose Feline Infectious Peritonitis
TLDR
Positive and negative predictive values of Rivalta's test, a test that distinguishes between exudates and transudates, and immunofluorescence staining of coronavirus antigen in macrophages were investigated, and diagnostic assays on the fluid in cats with body effusion had good predictive values. Expand
Feline infectious peritonitis: a review of clinicopathological changes in 65 cases, and a critical assessment of their diagnostic value
TLDR
None of the laboratory tests, including coronavirus serology, had good sensitivity and specificity for the diagnosis of the disease and the presence of multiple abnormalities compatible with the disease increased the specificity but decreased the sensitivity of the diagnosis. Expand
