Abstract

Thirteen dogs with encephalomyelitis attributable to canine distemper virus infection were classified into 3 groups on the basis of histopathologic evidence of virus-induced lesions in CNS tissue. Analysis of data indicated a similarity within groups when arranged by age, clinical neurologic signs, and alterations in the CSF electrophoretic protein values. Comparison with results in dogs with experimentally induced canine distemper encephalomyelitis suggested that when grouped by age, CSF electrophoretic values are helpful in predicting the CNS histopathologic changes in dogs with naturally acquired canine distemper encephalomyelitis.
