During the past 12 months an apparently new disease of cats has occurred with increasing frequency throughout the United Kingdom causing high morbidity and mortality and arousing considerable interest both within and outside the profession. The purpose of this paper is to report what is known about the disease and to indicate lines of current research. As there is an urgent need to communicate information it will be appreciated that this paper is incomplete in certain areas such as pathology and epidemiology where studies are still in progress.
