Quiz for NAVLE review about feline infectious peritonitis


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    FIP is what kind of virus?

    • A.

      Herpesvirus

    • B.

      Coronavirus

    • C.

      Adenovirus

    • D.

      Pestivirus

    Correct Answer
    B. Coronavirus
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Coronavirus. Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) is caused by a coronavirus infection in cats. This virus belongs to the family Coronaviridae. FIP is a highly contagious and often fatal disease that affects the immune system and various organs in cats. Although there are different types of coronaviruses, the one responsible for FIP is a mutated form of the feline enteric coronavirus (FECV).

    Rate this question:

  • 2. 

    The type of inflammation usually associated with FIP is:

    • A.

      Serous

    • B.

      Purulent

    • C.

      Pyogranulonatous

    • D.

      No inflammation associated

    Correct Answer
    C. Pyogranulonatous
    Explanation
    Pyogranulomatous inflammation is the type of inflammation usually associated with FIP. This type of inflammation is characterized by the presence of both granulomatous and suppurative features. Granulomatous inflammation is characterized by the formation of granulomas, which are collections of immune cells, while suppurative inflammation is characterized by the presence of pus. FIP is a viral disease that affects cats and is known to cause pyogranulomatous inflammation in various organs such as the liver, kidney, and intestines.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    What is true regarding morbidity and mortality with FIP?

    • A.

      Both are high

    • B.

      Both are low (20%)

    • C.

      Morbidity 20% mortality 90%

    • D.

      Morbidity 90% mortality 20%

    Correct Answer
    C. Morbidity 20% mortality 90%
    Explanation
    The correct answer is morbidity 20% mortality 90%. This means that FIP has a low morbidity rate of 20%, indicating that only a small percentage of individuals infected with FIP will actually show symptoms of the disease. However, the mortality rate is high at 90%, suggesting that a large percentage of individuals who develop symptoms of FIP will unfortunately die from the disease.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    What are the 2 forms of FIP?

    Correct Answer
    wet and dry
    Explanation
    The two forms of FIP are wet and dry. Feline Infectious Peritonitis (FIP) is a viral disease that affects cats. The wet form of FIP is characterized by the accumulation of fluid in the abdomen or chest, leading to symptoms such as weight loss, lethargy, and difficulty breathing. On the other hand, the dry form of FIP involves the formation of granulomas in various organs, leading to symptoms such as fever, loss of appetite, and neurological issues. These two forms of FIP have different clinical presentations and outcomes.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Both forms of FIP are progressive and fatal.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Both forms of FIP, which refers to feline infectious peritonitis, are progressive and fatal. This means that regardless of whether it is the wet or dry form of FIP, the disease will continue to worsen over time and ultimately result in the death of the affected cat. There is currently no known cure for FIP, making it a devastating and deadly disease for felines.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    My cat has CNS signs, which form of FIP could this be?

    • A.

      Wet

    • B.

      Dry

    • C.

      CNS signs is not included in the CS's for FIP

    Correct Answer
    B. Dry
    Explanation
    The given question states that the cat has CNS signs and asks which form of FIP it could be. The answer provided is "Dry." This implies that CNS signs are not typically associated with FIP, as they are not included in the clinical signs (CS's) for FIP. Therefore, it suggests that the cat's symptoms are more likely to be related to the dry form of FIP rather than the wet form.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    The most common sequela to FIP is:

    • A.

      DIC

    • B.

      Hemolytic anemia

    • C.

      Respiratory collapse

    • D.

      Liver failure

    Correct Answer
    A. DIC
    Explanation
    DIC, or disseminated intravascular coagulation, is a condition characterized by abnormal blood clotting and bleeding throughout the body. Feline infectious peritonitis (FIP) is a viral disease that primarily affects the immune system and can lead to systemic inflammation. DIC is a known complication of FIP, as the excessive inflammation and immune response triggered by the virus can disrupt the normal blood clotting process. This can result in the formation of small blood clots in the blood vessels, leading to organ damage and potentially life-threatening bleeding. Therefore, DIC is the most common sequela, or consequence, of FIP.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    What is an indicator that the cat has FIP?

    • A.

      Pale yellow clots in fluid after is sits for a while

    • B.

      CSF or aqueous humor has increased PMNs

    • C.

      Tests positive for corona virus

    • D.

      A and B

    Correct Answer
    D. A and B
    Explanation
    The presence of pale yellow clots in fluid after it sits for a while and an increased number of polymorphonuclear cells (PMNs) in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) or aqueous humor are indicators that the cat has FIP. Additionally, testing positive for the corona virus also suggests FIP.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    There is no known cure for FIP

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    FIP, or feline infectious peritonitis, is a viral disease that affects cats. Currently, there is no known cure for FIP. The disease is caused by a mutation of the feline coronavirus, and it can be fatal. Treatment options for FIP are limited and mainly focus on managing the symptoms and providing supportive care to improve the cat's quality of life. However, these treatments do not eliminate the virus or cure the disease completely. Therefore, the statement "There is no known cure for FIP" is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    There is no known effective treatment in prolonging life with FIP.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because FIP, which stands for feline infectious peritonitis, is a viral disease that affects cats and currently has no known effective treatment. FIP is caused by a mutation of the feline coronavirus, and it can lead to a variety of symptoms and complications, ultimately resulting in death. While supportive care and management of symptoms can be provided, there is no cure for FIP, and it is generally considered fatal. Therefore, the statement is correct in stating that there is no known effective treatment in prolonging life with FIP.

    Rate this question:

  • 11. 

    How would you treat ocular involvement (FIP)?

    • A.

      Topical antibiotics (2'bacterial infections)

    • B.

      Glycopyrolate

    • C.

      Topical steroids and atropine

    • D.

      Topical pilocarpine

    Correct Answer
    C. Topical steroids and atropine
    Explanation
    Topical steroids and atropine are the appropriate treatment for ocular involvement in FIP. FIP, or feline infectious peritonitis, is a viral disease that can affect various organs, including the eyes. Topical steroids help reduce inflammation in the eyes, while atropine is a medication that dilates the pupils and helps relieve pain and discomfort. These treatments can help manage ocular symptoms and improve the overall condition of the cat with FIP.

    Rate this question:

  • 12. 

    How do you prevent FIP

    • A.

      Vaccinate

    • B.

      There is no way to prevent it

    • C.

      Isolate cats that show possible signs

    • D.

      A and C

    Correct Answer
    D. A and C
    Explanation
    To prevent FIP (Feline Infectious Peritonitis), it is recommended to vaccinate cats and isolate those that show possible signs of the disease. Vaccination can help build immunity against FIP, reducing the risk of infection. Isolating cats with potential symptoms can prevent the spread of the disease to other cats. Therefore, both options A and C are valid preventive measures for FIP.

    Rate this question:
