Abstract The onset of nervous disorders associated with levamisole hydrochloride therapy is described in five dogs. Distemper and granulomatous encephalomyelitis were diagnosed in four cases. Possible stimulation of the cellular immune response by levamisole, with resultant secondary tissue damage, was believed to be associated with the time of onset and the severity of these disorders. The neuronal degeneration in the fifth case was not consistent with an inflammatory disorder. The possible role of levamisole in this case is unknown. Copyright
