 I have known of two horses who were diagnosed with it.  One has apparently 
 recovered after months on the treatment protocol and the other is still 
 undergoing treatment. The key is early detection as far as saving the horse. 
 Good luck with your guy!!!

The problem is that the spinal tap can be as expensive as the treatment. If 
we have good indicators as well as the exposure test, then we move ahead with 
the treatment.
