Appropriate management of atypical myopathy (AM) requires the establishment of an accurate diagnosis and prognosis. Furthermore, preventive measures to avoid AM need to be refined. The aims of the study were as follows: 1) to improve the diagnosis of AM; 2) to identify prognostic predictors; and 3) to refine recommended preventive measures based on indicators of risk factors.

Epidemiological data of atypical myopathy cases reported in France in autumn 2006 to spring 2010 were compared with those of European cases. During the observation period, 38.9% of European cases were French. The demographics of the French case were identical to the European cases but the survival rate was higher (32% vs. 26%). Differences in the management of horses and pastures have emerged. From these elements, techniques, case management and the environment are proposed [less ▲]

Atypical myopathy is a specific disease of horses kept at pastures most of the day. The condition is distinguished by the acute and unpredictable nature of its appearance, its high fatality rate and its rapid evolution. Indeed, over 75% of affected horses die within 72 hours after presenting clinical signs resulting from the severe degeneration of different muscle groups involved in breathing, posture, or the heart muscle. There are fewer than ten years, this disease was unknown from the veterinary and equestrian field. More than a dozen European countries are now concerned by this specific disease of equines. Recently, atypical myopathy has also been recognised in the USA. Atypical myopathy does not show characteristics of a contagious disease but its occurrence is linked to specific environmental conditions and thus, it emerges in the form of an epizooty: several grazing horses are hit by the disease at the same time and in different regions or even in different European countries. The clinical outbreaks are reported mainly in autumn and spring. Occurrence of the clinical syndrome in a horse implies that appropriate circumstances to the onset of the atypical myopathy were present in the host and/or in its environment. Large European epidemiological investigations have identified those circumstances, thus defining risk factors. These factors are related to the host (e.g. host susceptibility due to age), timing (e.g. season), location (e.g. local geological and ecological factors) and other miscellaneous features (e.g. type of feed, climatic conditions, the use of the horse). This review describes management practices at the horse and pasture level in order to reduce the incidence of atypical myopathy in grazing horses. [less ▲]
