Conclusions
This data suggest that chronic EMC causes persistent myocardial injury, with no signs of pressure/volume overload. Fatigue demonstrated a possible risk factor for survival.

Introduction
A 12 year-old female Scottish Terrier was referred to the clinic because of lethargy, lack of appetite and occasional vomiting. The animal poorly responded to previous supportive treatment. On admission, the dog was unconscious and dehydrated.
Objectives
To determine the cause of the poor clinical state of the animal.
Methods
Ultrasound and echocardiography examination, blood pressure measurement and necropsy.
An Urban Experience
Results
Ultrasound examination revealed a 31 × 45 mm tumor of the left adrenal gland and an oblong 37 × 1.1 mm mass in the lumen of the caudal vena cava. Echocardiography showed massive concentric left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy (thickness of the intraventricular septum and of the left free wall was 17 mm and 13 mm, respectively). Systolic arterial blood pressure measured by oscillometry was 189 mmHg, diastolic – 132 mmHg, and mean – 151 mmHg. The dog died soon after admission. Autopsy con rmed an adrenal tumor (Fig 1), a caudal vena cava thrombus and LV hypertrophy (Fig 2).
