Abstract
Acute steroid responsive meningitis-arteritis (SRMA) is a common neurological disorder in young dogs. Typical clinical symptoms of the acute form of SRMA are neck pain, depression and fever. This case report describes a 1.5-year-old Pointer with uncommon neurological deficits (unilateral multiple cranial nerve deficits and Homer's syndrome) and an exceptional necrosis of the tongue. This was believed to be part of the systemic vasculitis accompanying SRMA. The patient also developed tail necrosis and iatrogenic calcinosis cutis, which complicated further treatment of the dog.
