Equine rhinovirus 2 has been renamed equine rhinitis B virus 1 (ERBV1) and reclassified as the sole member of a new genus Erbovirus. It has been suggested that equine rhinovirus 3 should also be assigned to this genus and renamed ERBV2. 18 Infectious diseases EQUINE ADENOVIRUS Serologic surveys for equine adenovirus indicate that infection is widespread but that the majority of infections do not result in clinical disease. However, adenovirus pneumonia is well documented in Arabian foals and the virus has been isolated from foals of other breeds with respiratory disease and from clinically normal foals.

Safety studies have shown that vaccinated stallions may experience a temporary reduction in the percentage of sperm with normal morphology 2–3 wk after vaccination but no other significant effects on semen quality were observed. Vaccine virus can be isolated sporadically from the blood and nasopharynx of some stallions but it does not appear to be shed in the semen. The vaccine appears to protect horses against clinical disease but does not prevent virus infection, replication or shedding. Vaccinated mares can be covered by a carrier stallion and are protected against clinical disease.

The virus has also been isolated from mosquitoes and ticks, which may play a role in the transmission of the disease. EEV also appears to be transmitted by Culicoides midges and to date has only been identified in South Africa. Viral diseases yellowish foam is almost invariably present in the nostrils. Other lesions may include submucosal congestion of the fundus of the stomach and slight ascites. The cardiac form is characterized by a yellow gelatinous edema of the supraorbital fossa, the intermandibular space and along the fascia of the muscle bundles in the frontal, cervical and sternal regions.
