Theme: Inflammatory and infectious diseases of the nervous system in animals. In recent years, this group of diseases has become an important theme in veterinary medicine. A number of new or re-discovered diseases such as the breed-specific encephalitides, emerging infections, zoonoses and spongiform encephalopathies pose serious challenges to our specialty around the world. Immune-mediated conditions of the nervous system appear to be on the rise. The last ESVN meeting addressing this theme dates back 15 years. The objectives of the 2007 meeting are to present state of the art reviews, to clarify the classification and case definition of the new inflammatory diseases, to highlight comparative aspects and to stimulate international multi-centric research in this area.
