A detailed investigation of the neuropathology of a horse affected with stringhalt was performed. Qualitative and quantitative light and electron microscopy, and single teased fibre preparations of peripheral nerve demonstrated predominantly axonal degeneration, the stage of which was appropriate for the duration of clinical signs. There was selective involvement of large myelinated nerve fibres. A proximal to distal increase in the severity of pathological changes was present in the peripheral… Expand
