BackgroundSebaceous adenitis (SA) is an uncommon, immune mediated skin disease in dogs. The aim was to retrospectively investigate SA in dogs in Sweden with respect to breed, sex and age distribution. A second aim was to retrospectively compare clinical signs in dogs with generalized SA and to estimate the survival after diagnosis in the English springer spaniel, standard poodle and the akita.MethodsIn total 34 Swedish veterinarians contributed with 104 clinically and histologically verified SA…

Sebaceous adenitis in Havanese dogs: a retrospective study of the clinical presentation and incidence.
TLDR
Sebaceous adenitis was a common diagnosis in Havanese dogs, the ears were commonly affected and that a lymphoplasmacytic periadnexal infiltrate associated with absent sebaceous glands was frequently seen on dermatohistopathological examination.
Vulvar Fordyce adenitis: A cohort of 45 women.
Oral vitamin A as an adjunct treatment for canine sebaceous adenitis.
TLDR
Medical records of dogs with sebaceous adenitis diagnosed by histopathology over an 18-year period were reviewed and correlations could be made between vitamin A dosage and response to treatment; prognoses could not be made based on clinical and histopathological findings.
Sebaceous adenitis in a cat.
TLDR
Although it is atypical in cats, sebaceous adenitis must be considered as a differential diagnosis for inflammatory diseases with similar clinical signs, as well as in dogs, cats, rabbits, horses and humans.
Determining whether risk for sebaceous adenitis of Standard Poodles is associated with a specific DLA class II genotype
TLDR
Sebaceous adenitis is an autoimmune disease that is seen mainly in the Standard Poodle, Akita, and English Springer Spaniel and appears to be low at this time but increasing in frequency over time.
Zapalenie gruczołów łojowych u psów
TLDR
Clinical symptoms, histopathological manifestations and methods of treatment were described and skin disease often observed in small animal practice in dogs was presented.
Successful Treatment of Idiopathic Sebaceous Adenitis in a Lionhead Rabbit
TLDR
Nine months later, there had been significant hair regrowth on previously hairless areas and the Rabbit Dermatitis Extent and Severity Index confirmed the marked improvement with a 91% reduction in the original score.
Transverse sectioning for histological assessment of sebaceous glands in healthy dogs and canine sebaceous adenitis.
TLDR
Transverse sectioning of canine skin specimens to allow visualization of the follicular isthmus or deep portion of the common infundibulum enhances the histological assessment of sebaceous glands in both health and disease.
Sebaceous adenitis in dogs
TLDR
Sebaceous adenitis is a non-inflammatory condition characterised by scaling and alopecia that is described in some breeds, but the condition can occur in any breed.
A multicentre placebo-controlled clinical trial on the efficacy of oral ciclosporin A in the treatment of canine idiopathic sebaceous adenitis in comparison with conventional topical treatment.
TLDR
There is evidence that regeneration of sebaceous glands is best achieved by CsA, either given alone or in combination with topical treatment, and there is evidence of a synergistic benefit on both scaling and alopecia, if both treatment options are combined.

Sebaceous adenitis in the Akita: clinical observations, histopathology and heredity.
TLDR
It seems that regeneration of the sebaceous glands may occur in pure-bred Akitas, and an autosomal recessive inheritance appears to be possible.
An evaluation of the clinical, cytological, infectious and histopathological features of feline acne.
Clinical, cytological, microbial and histopathological features of feline acne were investigated in 22 cats referred or volunteered to a veterinary dermatology practice in the south-west region of
Effects of cyclosporine A on clinical and histologic abnormalities in dogs with sebaceous adenitis.
TLDR
Results suggest that administration of cyclosporine A at a dosage of 5 mg/kg/d may reduce the inflammation associated with sebaceous adenitis in dogs, and long-term treatment appears to be neccessary to control the disease.
Sebaceous adenitis in dogs and results of treatment with isotretinoin and etretinate: 30 cases (1990-1994).
TLDR
Medical records of 30 dogs with histologically confirmed sebaceous adenitis that were treated with isotretinoin or etretinate were reviewed, and a prognosis could not be determined on the basis of whetherSebaceous glands were evident histologically.
Neutrophilic sebaceous adenitis.
TLDR
A previously healthy 18-year-old white man presented with circinate plaques of the face characterized histologically by inflammation of the sebaceous glands that had violaceous, elevated borders and systemic steroid therapy was begun, and the lesions began clearing.
Symmetrical alopecia, scaling and hepatitis in a rabbit.
TLDR
A 5-year-old rabbit with inappetence, symmetrical alopecia and skin lesions was examined and the liver exhibited an interface hepatitis comparable to autoimmune hepatitis in man, in association with an autoimmune hepatitis.
Sebaceous adenitis in four domestic rabbits (Oryctatagus cuniculus).
TLDR
Histological changes not consistent with sebaceous adenitis in other species were interface dermatitis and interface folliculitis with single cell necrosis and basal cell hydropic degeneration.

Thymoma-associated exfoliative dermatitis in a rabbit.
TLDR
Skin biopsies showed similarities with sebaceous adenitis described in rabbits, and a possible paraneoplastic skin disease was suspected, based on similarities with thymoma-associated exfoliative dermatitis in cats.
Cyclosporine-responsive granulomatous sebaceous adenitis in a dog.
TLDR
Although cyclosporine has immunosuppressive properties, this drug also has inhibitory effects of keratinocyte proliferation, which may explain the beneficial response of cyclospora in the treatment of granulomatous sebaceous adenitis in this dog.
