Since trigeminal neuralgia or neuropathic pain has been regarded as a putative cause of idiopathic headshaking in horses. Equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1) infection and resultant postherpetic pain have been suggested as a possible cause of such neuropathic pain. This study was to determine if there is a presence of EHV-1 in the trigeminal ganglia of horses with idiopathic headshaking.
