Inherited Polyneuropathy in Leonberger Dogs

Hultin Jäderlund, Karin; Baranowska, Izabella; Nødtvedt, Ane


Conclusions and Clinical Importance: The ILPN is considered most likely to be one disease, and the inheritance of ILPN is best explained by an underlying X-linked mode of transmission for the phenotype. However, age at onset and severity of signs might be determined by contributing loci. This has consequences in molecular genetic studies and for breeding strategies aimed at eliminating this disease.
