ARAUJO, Felipe Purcell de; ARAUJO, Bruno Martins; KEMPER, Bernardo  and  TUDURY, Eduardo Alberto. Sacrococcygeal agenesis association and anal atresia in mixed breed cats. Cienc. Rural [online]. 2009, vol.39, n.6, pp.1893-1896. ISSN 0103-8478.

This paper has the objective to report a case of a cat that since birth had anal atresia, absence of tail and malformation of the pelvic member. The radiographic examination revealed agenesis of the seventh lumbar vertebra, sacral and coccygeal vertebrae, spina bifida, meningocele, hyperflexion of the knees and tarsal valgus deviation, diagnosing sacrococcygeal agenesis associated with anal atresia.

Keywords : Agenesis; sacrococcygeal region; anal atresia; cats.
