Malformations of the central nervous system included bilateral hydrocephalus, cerebellar hypoplasia, and micromyelia, characterized by the presence of few neurons in the ventral horns and moderate to severe bilateral reduction of white matter in the ventral and lateral funiculi.
For the 2 calves that were SBV positive, micromyelia and arthrogryposis were found in both and cerebellar hypoplasia in 1.
