Spongiform encephalopathy in a nyala (Tragelaphus angasi)



Spongiform encephalopathy in a nyala (Tragelaphus angasi)



Veterinary Pathology 25(5): 398-399



A female nyala (33 months old), bred and kept at a wildlife park in the UK, developed hind limb ataxia followed several days later by episodes of abnormal head posture. Persistent licking and nibbling of the tail base and rump caused ulceration of the skin. Micturition was frequent. The condition deteriorated and the animal was killed after 3 weeks. The brain and cervical segments of the spinal cord were examined for microscopic lesions.
