The central nervous system is the body’s processing center that allows sending, receiving and interpreting of information from all parts of the body. Granulomatous Meningoencephalitis is an inflammatory disease of the Central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) of Dogs.

Granulomatous Meningoencephalitis is an inflammatory disease of the Central Nervous System of dogs that involves the swelling of the tissue lining the central nervous system and the brain. GME is characterized by dense aggregates of inflammatory cells arranged in whirling patterns around blood vessels.
Granulomatous Meningoencephalitis is of three types
- Disseminated- there is an accumulation of mononuclear cells around the blood vessels of the Central nervous system.
- Focal- this type of GME mimics a tumor that develops slowly over several months.
- Ocular- this is an uncommon form of GME caused by optic neuritis (can cause sudden blindness).
The lesions of Granulomatous Meningoencephalitis exist mostly in the white matter of the cerebellum, spinal cord, and brain stem.
The brain related disorders in humans and animals occur due to the imbalance of Vatadi doshas in the body due to improper lifestyle and diet. Following improper rules for living will aggravate doshas that will hinder the normal functioning of all the hormones, organs, and disturb dhatus. These all factors will together disbalance the body in all aspects that will impact the brain nerves and cause brain disorders.
