Abstract
A nine-month-old domestic short haired cat was admitted with the history of acute vomiting, depression and shivering.
Abdominal ultrasonography revealed minimum enlargement of the right uterine horn filled with anechoic fluid. On excretory urography,
functionally and anatomically normal, enlarged left kidney was found, but right kidney was absent. It was preliminary diagnosed as
hydrometra with right renal agenesis. Aiming at the correction of hydrometra, we performed ovariohysterectomy. During spaying, we
found a missing segment of distal part of the right uterine horn and absence of ipsilateral kidney and ureter. Compressed uterine structure
and segmental aplasia of right uterine horn were found in histopathological investigation. Taken together, it was diagnosed as a segmental
aplasia of uterine horn with ipsilateral renal agenesis.
