Eight vaccinated dogs suddenly developed progressive ataxia, paresis or paralysis of short duration. A histopathological examination revealed a non-suppurative meningoencephalitis suggestive of a viral infection, and immunohistochemical examination confirmed the presence of canine distemper virus antigen in five of the dogs. Distemper had not been suspected from the clinical examination of the dogs.
