When you hear hoof beats do you think of horses or zebras? When most equine veterinarians think of endocrinopathies they think of pituitary pars intermedia dysfunction and equine metabolic syndrome. On occasion however, less common endocrinopthies such as pheochromocytomas, hyperthyroidism, hyperparathyroidism or neoplasia-associated hypoglycaemia may be encountered. These are usually secondary to neoplasia of both endocrine and non-endocrine organs and are exceedingly rare. This lecture provides a case-based approach to rare endocrinopathies that will enable veterinarians to recognise these diseases in the unlikely event that they are encountered in practice.
