    Course ImageCourse Description: Sarcocystis neurona is the most common etiologic agent identified as a cause of EPM, but similar parasites, including Neospora hughesi, have also been identified. Although EPM has been recognized since 1970 and most equine practitioners in North America are routinely confronted with this neurologic disease, several issues are still encountered, including ante-mortem diagnostic modalities to support a diagnosis, prevention and treatment. This lecture will review established knowledge of EPM and also present new developments of the epidemiology, serological testing and treatment of this disease.
