Common peripheral nerve disorders in the horse

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

WITH rare exceptions, horses are largely unaffected by the plethora of developmental, degenerative and metabolic axonopathies and myelinopathies that perplex neurologists in human and small animal medicine. Nevertheless, selected equine peripheral nerve syndromes are not uncommon. A detailed neurological examination is an absolute prerequisite to localising peripheral neuropathies and determining the underlying aetiology of these syndromes. This article describes disorders affecting cranial and other peripheral nerves in the horse, and discusses the diagnosis, treatment and prognosis for each condition.
