Clinical manifestations of feline leukemia are diverse. A case report presents a young cat showing bilateral exophthalmos and subcutaneous nodules. Pathohistologic findings identified the cause as lymhoid infiltration of fatty tissue. A laboratory and radiographic work-up of the cat revealed additional FeLV-associated organ disease. An ultrasonographic examination of the retrobulbar space imaged the space-occupying lymphoid infiltration as discrete hypoechoic foci.
