Case Definition for West Nile Virus Infection in Horses
June 2001

Samples will be accepted by the Animal Health Laboratory for West Nile virus testing, if requested, throughout the year, but will only be considered 'potential' cases based on the following definition. This definition may have to be modified as more information is discovered about the virus and its behavior in horses.

Suspect Case

A suspect case is any case occurring in a horse between June 15 and November 15, with acute onset clinical neurologic signs, as described by the referring accredited veterinarian. These symptoms may include ataxia; muscle weakness, particularly of the hind limbs; falling down with inability to rise; requires assistance to stand; seizures; limb paralysis; muscle fasciculation; hyperesthesia; hypermetria.

Confirmed Case

Samples will be tested in the Animal Health Laboratory and all positive samples will be sent to the National Veterinary Services Laboratory in Ames, Iowa, for confirmation.

Clinical cases with positive, confirmed test results will be considered West Nile virus cases.

Asymptomatic cases with confirmed test results will be considered infected, but not clinical, cases.

Additional cases may be included when indicated and approved by the Assistant Director for Livestock Disease Control, NJDA's Division of Animal Health.
