Abstract

A cytopathogenic virus with size and structural characteristics of a Herpesviridae was isolated from a cheetah with severe ulcerative dermatitis. Restriction endonuclease analysis and cross-hybridization studies revealed that the isolate was related to feline herpesvirus type 1 (FHV-1). Antigenic comparison studies using anti-FHV-1 serum demonstrated the presence of common antigens in the FHV-1 and the isolate from the cheetah.
