Clinical and pathologic features of a sporadic, necrotizing meningoencephalitis affecting adolescent and mature pug dogs are described. Many of the affected animals were closely related. Acute and chronic forms occur, with clinical signs reflecting the pathologic affinity of the disease for the cerebral hemispheres. No etiologic agent has been identified. The extensive necrosis and affinity for the cerebral hemispheres are similar to alphatype herpesvirus encephalitides of other species.
