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

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.

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.

Clinical and Molecular Relationships between COVID-19 and Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP)

The molecular and clinical relationships between FIP and COVID-19 are explored and key differences between the two syndromes exist, which support further examination of feline coronaviruses as a naturally occurring clinical model for coronavirus disease in humans.

Feline Infectious Peritonitis

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

The prognosis could be correlated well with the gross appearance of the fluid and was poor except in cases yielding purulent or flocculent material.
