Abstract

A spontaneous neurological disease in domestic cats is described. The clinical signs included staggering gait, hind limb ataxia, and paresis. Histologically, a nonsuppurative meningoencephalomyelitis with a characteristic distribution pattern was found, indicating a viral etiology. In serum samples from diseased cats, antibodies to Borna disease virus were demonstrated.
