leukoencephalomalacia

leukoencephalomalacia

encephalomalacia affecting especially the white matter. Occurs in carbon monoxide poisoning, mulberry heart disease of pigs and mycotoxic leukoencephalomalacia.

mycotoxic leukoencephalomalacia
a syndrome of ataxia, tremor, circling, depressed consciousness, recumbency and death in horses and donkeys; caused by poisoning by fumonisins from the fungus Fusarium moniliforme, usually ingested with moldy corn.
