ABSTRACT

Renal telangiectasia has been reported in Pembroke Welsh corgis with chronic hematuria; however, the sonographic features of these lesions have never been described. Two dogs with confirmed renal telangiectasia and one dog with presumptive renal telangiectasia were identified in a medical record search. All dogs had one or more variably sized renal nodules identified on abdominal ultrasound. The nodules in two of the three dogs were similar, appearing hyperechoic with numerous punctate hypoechoic to anechoic foci throughout. None of the nodules showed evidence of hemodynamic flow on Doppler ultrasound. Renal telangiectasia should be considered as a benign differential diagnosis, particularly in Pembroke Welsh corgis.
