canine tail gland hyperplasia

Since there is not a specific description for this diagnosis we have been temporarily using Feline stud tail D0-51310.

In Saunders: "In dogs, a spongy enlargment with alopecia and scaling of the area, usually associated with hormonal disturbances, which the apocrine gland segment is especially hyperplastic. The tail gland is an oval area of skin on the dorsal aspect of the tail in dogs centered at the level of the 8th coccygeal vertebrae which contains a large number of sebacceous and apocrine glands.

Should we add the description of canine tail gland hyperplasia to D0-51310 or should we create a new concept? From what I have read it is the same thing as Feline stud tail.

In a previous review of veterinary concepts, I had also decided that we should make "tail gland hyperplasia" the concept and "stud tail" a (retired?) synonym. I'm not honestly sure when these changes will happen but the need for them has been duly noted.

Thanks

In Saunder manual of Small Animal Practice they referenced a similar condition in ferrets called tail alopecia. You may want to add this to the synonym list along with feline stud tail. I wonder how many different ways we can call the same thing in different species.

Tail gland hyperplasia now exists.
FYI: Feline stud tail still needs to be retired.

thanks
