A preliminary report on the possible genetic basis of laryngeal hemiplegia

A preliminary report on the possible genetic basis of laryngeal hemiplegia

Equine Veterinary Journal 21(2): 137-138

LARYNGEAL hemiplegia has been suspected of having a genetic basis for a long time (Quinlan and Morton 1957; Cook 1970; Mason 1973; Cook 1988) but definite proof of its hereditary nature is lacking. However, Galizzi Vecchiotti and Galanti (1985) have shown that members of eight affected Thoroughbred families suffered in significantly larger numbers from hemoplegia (29 per cent) than did comparable offspring of unaffected sires (3.4 per cent). A review of the literature on the pathogenesis of equine laryngeal hemiplegia was presented by Cahill and Goulden (1987). In this report, we present the results of a study involving 47 offspring of an affected stallion compared with a similar number of controls.
