An interesting feature during this study was the constant immunolabelling of SVA within epithelial cells ol the choroid plexus of the brain and the surrounding endothelia of blood vessels in piglets with neurologic disease On the basis of the IHC results and molecular findings h different tissues of the brain, we theorized that the neurologic manifestations of SVA observed during this investigation might be due to early infection of the choroid plexus through alteration of the integrity of the vascular epithelium and subsequent dissemination to the adjacem neuropil.
