PVMA CE Presentation: Canine Lymphoplasmacytic Rhinitis
Canine Lymphoplasmacytic Rhinitis: Diagnosis and Management of This Frustrating Condition – A Medicine and Dentist's Perspective

The combined session will discuss the frustrating condition of canine lymphoplasmacytic rhinitis (LPR). The regional anatomy, differential diagnosis, possible etiologies, diagnosis, treatment and management will be presented from a collaborative perspective of internal medicine and dentistry/oral surgery. The combined session will include a presentation of the physical examination and diagnostic tools clinicians have at their disposal to evaluate the nasal cavity and the limitations of many of these diagnostics (CS). The discussion will progress in a case-based fashion with examples of advanced diagnostics such as CT and rhinoscopy. A discussion on treatment options will highlight literature on the subject and offer a chance for practitioners to interact and ask specific questions about this frustrating disease process. The combined session will include a presentation including the association of odontogenic infection (KSS) with LPR. The regional anatomy of juxtaposed maxillary dentition with the nasal cavity and the hidden insidious periodontal, endodontic, and inflammatory odontogenic disease will be discussed. Understanding signalment, clinical history, and physical and oral examination findings can help guide the pathway of diagnostic modalities and appropriate treatment.
