Abstract

A male pug dog suffering from epilepsy was treated for 17 months. The onset of the seizures was at 9 months of age. It was difficult to detect the cause of the epilepsy, although various laboratory examinations were made. Clinical findings were as follows: an increase in protein concentration and the number of mononuclear cells (13/mu L) were detected in only one examination repeated cerebrospinal fluid analysis; magnetic resonance imaging revealed the dilation of both lateral ventricles and the existence of areas of increased signal intensity in the cerebrum: slow waves were found in an electroencephalogram throughout the course of the case. Combined anticonvulsanttherapy using phenobarbital, prednisone, and/or medicines of plant origin (Japanese Kampo) was not entirely successful in controlling the services, although Japanese Kampo therapy allowed the dog to be comfortable for 4 months. The histopathologic examination of biopsy and necropsy samples showed extensive cerebral necrosis, severe astrogliosis, and mild infiltration of mononuclear cells in the cerebrum, indicating that the case was necrotizing meningoencephalitis (pug encephalitis).
