Top Endocrine Publications of 2010: The Canine Adrenal Gland

In my sixth compilation of the canine and feline endocrine publications of 2010, I’m moving on to disorders of the canine adrenal gland.

Listed below are 31 research papers written in 2010 that deal with a variety of adrenal gland issues of clinical importance in dogs.

These range from the investigations of hypoadrenocorticism (1, 14-16, 19, 29) to typical (3, 5, 8-10, 13, 17, 20, 24, 26, 30) and atypical (4, 6) hyperadrenocorticism; from diagnostic tests for Cushing's syndrome (17, 30) to studies of ultrasonography for evaluation  and differentiation of adrenal disease (5, 28);  and from trilostane (3,8, 9, 24) to studies of the efficacy of transsphenoidal surgery as treatment for Cushing's disease (13.

In addition, other studies include the investigation of urine and plasma catecholamines in diagnoses of canine pheochromocytoma (7, 11, 18,  23) to a review of canine chemodectoma (22); and from  studies of the endocrine hypertension (19, 25) to reports on the risks of human estrogen sprays to pets through contact with treated skin (28).
