Equine herpesvirus myeloencephalopathy, out of symptoms by equine herpesvirus type 1 (EHV-1) in-fection, can cause devastating losses on individual farms. Although myeloencephalopathy syndromes of horses in Korea have been recognized for a couple of years in horse populations, there is little study regarding the occurrence of EHV-1 infections. The present study was performed to detect the viral in-fection of horses with neurological syndrome using real-time PCR. Fifteen horses (27.3%) out of 55 horses with neurological deficiency were positive for EHV-1 viral antigen. Among these 7 horses, 4 horses were detected genotype of A2254/N752 and 3 horses G2254/D752 strain, respectively.
