The equine protozoal myeloencephalitis
(EPM) test was used for the analysis of learning and memory.
Within 3 months after symptom onset, she died of myeloencephalitis
of undetermined etiology.
The clinical manifestations of EHV infection are similar to the infection of equine influenza, equine arteritis virus (EAV), equine adenovirus, equine protozoal myeloencephalitis
, eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) and West Nile virus encephalitis (Powell, 1991).
In addition, other neurological condition should be listed, such as intervertebral disc protrusion with spinal cord compression (FOSS et al., 1983), discospondylitis, abscesses (ADAMS et al., 1985), rabies, neurological infection by herpesvirus, equine protozoal myeloencephalitis
, wobbler syndrome due to cervical vertebral malformation (ZACHARY, 2013; CANTILE & YOUSSEF, 2016) and post-anesthetic myelomalacia (JOUBERT et al., 2005).
The patient died several weeks later from an acute ascending myeloencephalitis
. A herpesvirus was isolated from several tissues at autopsy.
