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.
The predominant CNS lesions or conditions were cerebellar and cerebral hypoplasia, hydranencephaly, porencephaly, hydrocephalus, and micromyelia. Among the 8 small ruminants that were SBV positive by ISH, hydrocephalus was found in 5, cerebellar hypoplasia in 5, hydranencephaly in 1, and arthrogryposis in 6.
