Infectious peritonitis, a previously undescribed disease entity, was studied in 16 cats. The clinical disease was characterized by fever, ascites, lack of response to therapy, and high mortality. The principal lesion was a diffuse fibrinous peritonitis. The disease was experimentally produced in germ-free and conventional cats. Thus far, no etiologic agent has been demonstrated.

The virology and pathogenesis of feline infectious peritonitis
TLDR
A review of data given and a hypothesis on the pathogenesis of F I P is presented and Morphological and serological evidence suggests that the agent should be classified as a new member of the Coronaviridae family. Expand

TLDR
The significant findings of the postmortem examination were presence of whitish fibrinous fluid in abdominal and peritoneal cavity covering liver, kidney, spleen and intestine which are pathognomonic for FIP. Expand

TLDR
F eline infectious peritonitis (FIP) was first described as an ‘important disorder of cats’ by Holzworth in 1963 and a clinico-pathologic conference on this disorder was published in the following year. Expand
Feline Infectious Peritonitis
TLDR
Advances have been made in the clinical diagnosis of FIP, based on the clinical pathologic findings, serologic testing, and detection of virus using molecular (polymerase chain reaction) or antibody-based methods, Nevertheless, the Clinical diagnosis remains challenging in particular in the dry form of Fip, which is partly due to the incomplete understanding of infection biology and pathogenesis in FIP.

The prognosis and treatment related to the gross appearance and laboratory characteristics of pathological thoracic fluids in the cat
TLDR
The prognosis could be correlated well with the gross appearance of the fluid and was poor except in cases yielding purulent or flocculent material. Expand
Clinical and laboratory features of cats with feline infectious peritonitis – a retrospective study of 231 confirmed cases (2000–2010)
TLDR
The low prevalence of lymphopenia in cats without effusion suggests that this is not a useful parameter in non-effusive FIP, and potential changes in diagnostic criteria for FIP are evaluated. Expand
