Abstract

• In addition to Sarcocystis neurona, Neospora organisms may be a causative agent of equine protozoal myeloencephalitis. • Closely related parasites, such as S neurona and Neospora sp, must be differentiated on the basis of immunoblot analysis. • Definitive diagnosis of the causative agent of equine protozoal myeloencephalitis only can be made by means of postmortem immunohistochemical examination for determination of protozoal parasites.
