Abstract

In the present study 84 dogs with non-inflammatory and inflammatory canine distemper encephalomyelitis have been evaluated. The diagnosis was confirmed by histopathological examination and detection of the morbillivirus. Signalment, history, extraneural and neurological signs including localization contributed only to a limited degree to a specific diagnosis. Extraneural symptoms, specifically hyperkeratosis and cachexia, were found in about one half of the cases. In more than half ofthe cases there was no evidence of a multifocal lesion; one localization clearly prevailed. Useful diagnostic tests were hematology and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) examination. In the inflammatory stage of the disease mononuclear pleocytosis and intrathecal immunoglobulin synthesis, expressed by an elevated IgG-index were found. In the non-inflammatory stage of the disease the CSF examination gave no pathological findings. Demonstration of the viral antigen is specific and was performedusing fluorescent antibody techniques.
