Welcome
Welcome to gmedogs forum

This forum was created as a support group for owners of dogs with GME (Granulomatous Meningoencephalomyelitis) or NME (Necrotizing Meningoencephalitis). The board is a place to share whatever you want with others who know what you are going through.
As a guest, you can read all the posts, but you will need to register to post something of your own.
I hope you find comfort and support in this group. Despite this disease's grim prognosis, new treatments have given hope to many dogs out there.

Yorkshire Terrier Necrotizing Leukoencephalitis is a form of necrotizing meningoencephalitis of unknown etiology in Yorkshire Terriers. Because initial reports of this kind of encephalitis appeared to be specific to the Yorkshire Terrier breed, the disease was called one of the following names: Yorkshire Terrier Necrotizing Encephalitis, Yorkshire Terrier Necrotizing Leukoencephalitis, or Necrotizing Encephalitis of the Yorkshire Terrier. Because other breeds can be affected by this disease as well, Yorkshire Terrier Necrotizing Leukoencephalitis is now called NLE.

The necrotizing encephalitis of Yorkshire Terriers (NLE) may manifest with either forebrain (such as seizures, behavioral changes, visual deficits, and circling) or brain-stem dysfunction (depression of consciousness, limb weakness, and cranial nerve deficits). Yorkshire Terriers with NLE have been reported between the ages of 1 and 10 years.

For more information, please refer to the sections on NE and/or NME.
