Indication of Cross-Species Transmission of Astrovirus Associated with Encephalitis in Sheep and Cattle.

We report the identification of a neurotropic astrovirus associated with encephalitis in a sheep. This virus is genetically almost identical to an astrovirus recently described in neurologically diseased cattle. The similarity indicates that astroviruses of the same genotype may cause encephalitis in different species.
