dendritic ulcer
linear, branching pattern of ulceration on the cornea; characteristic of herpesvirus infections. See also herpetic keratitis.

gastroduodenal ulcer
common in foals 1-3 months old. Many are asymptomatic. Clinical cases manifest by mild, intermittent colic. See also gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer.
geographic ulcer
a large, superficial, irregularly shaped corneal ulcer, typically formed by the coalescence of several dendritic ulcers.

infectious dermal ulcer
a systemic, fatal bacteremia of snakes manifested by multiple, small cutaneous ulcers. Called also scale rot.
intestinal ulcer
is rare in all species. When they do occur, intestinal ulcers usually cause signs of chronic enteritis. It is a common lesion in adenocarcinoma of the intestine. See also peptic ulcer.

perforating ulcer
one that involves the entire thickness of an organ, creating an opening on both surfaces. See also ulcer perforation.
phagedenic ulcer
a necrotizing lesion in which tissue destruction is prominent.
refractory ulcer
a chronic, superficial corneal ulceration in dogs, particularly common in Boxers, that extends into the superficial stroma, often undermining epithelium at the edges. The cause is unknown but abnormalities of the basal epithelial cells and anterior stroma have been noted. Response to the usual methods of treatment for corneal ulceration is characteristically very slow; superficial keratectomy is the treatment of choice. Called also superficial corneal erosion syndrome, Boxer ulcer.
rodent ulcer
see eosinophilic ulcer.
stress ulcer
superficial ulcerations or erosions of mucosa in the stomach, duodenum or colon. The possible predisposing factors include changes in the microcirculation of the gastric mucosa, increased permeability of the gastric mucosa barrier to H+, and impaired cell proliferation.
stromal ulcer
a corneal ulcer involving the stroma.
trophic ulcer
one due to imperfect nutrition of the part. In dogs, may develop in digital and metatarsal pads in association with tibial nerve injury.

In another study, two groups were chosen; one of them received routine treatment of corneal ulcers and other group received routine treatment with subcutaneous autologous platelet concentrates, Significant differences between the two mentioned groups occurred in shorter treatment period and time of discharge that reduced the time needed to complete the treatment group after discharging from hospital [14].
