Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


EQUINE grass sickness (dysautonomia) is a neurological disease associated primarily with degeneration of neurons in the autonomic nervous system (including the enteric nervous system), although involvement of the somatic nervous system has also been widely reported. It affects all Equidae, is usually fatal and has an approximate incidence of 1 per cent in some parts of the UK. This article discusses the clinical aspects of the disease and summarises the findings of recent research into the aetiology and epidemiology of the condition.
