ABSTRACT
The article describes the cases of malignant catarrhal fever (MCF) in a group of young calves presenting with neurological signs. Findings were consistent with ovine herpesvirus type-2 infection as the cause of the neurological disease in the calves. It is concluded that MCF should be considered in the differential diagnosis of neurological disease in cattle, even in the absence of ocular lesions.
