Fibrous osteodystrophy in elderly canine secondary to chronic kidney disease: case report
Renal osteodystrophy or fibrous osteodystrophy is a complication of hyperparathyroidism secondary to chronic kidney disease, which may be present from the earliest stages. Osteoarthritis is an osteopenic disorder with the proliferation of fibrous connective tissue, most evident in the mandibular and maxillary bones, which affects young animals more frequently and is less frequent in older animals. The present report has as main objective to describe the case of an elderly female canine, with no defined race, with hyperparathyroidism secondary to a chronic renal disease that evolved to renal fibrous osteodystrophy.
