1. Undersökning av det hypothalama-neurohypofysära systemet

Summary

Bitches with polydipsia and pyometra (chronic purulent endometritis) were examined for ADH in the urine and the presence of Gomori-positive material in the hypothalamus and neurohypophysis.

There were no significant deviations from the normal in these respects. From this it appears that the cause of the polydipsia which often occurs in bitches with pyometra cannot be referred to disturbances in the hypothalamic-neurohypophyseal system.

Zusammenfassung

Hündinnen mit Pyometra (Endotritis purulenta chronica) und Polydipsie wurden auf Ausscheiden von ADH mit dem Urin als auch auf das Vorkommen vom Material im Hypothalamus und Neurohypophyse das sich nach Gomori färben lässt, untersucht.

Da sich die Tiere in erwähnter Hinsicht von den normalen Tieren unbedeutend unterscheiden, scheint es unwahrscheinlich, dass die Ursache solcher Polydipsie, die oft im Zusammenhang mit der Pyometra bei Hündinnen vorkommt, den Störungen im Hypothalamo-Neurohypophysären System, zuzuschreiben wäre.

Sammanfattning

Tikar med pyometra (kronisk purulent endometrit) och polydipsi har undersökts på utsöndringen av ADH med urinen samt på förekomsten av Gomori-färgbart material i hypothalamus och neurohypofysen.

Då djuren i ovannämnda avseenden ej påtagligt avveko från normala djur forefaller det osannolikt att orsaken till den polydipsi, som ofta förekommer i samband med pyometra hos tik, skulle vara betingad av störningar i det hypothalama-neurohypofysära systemet.
