Angus announces carrier of Neuropathic Hydrocephalus

published: September 14th 2018
source: American Angus Association

The American Angus Association® recently became aware that 3F Epic 4631, AAA 17950219 is a carrier of Neuropathic Hydrocephalus (NH).

Although not a potential carrier of NH by pedigree, a son of 3F Epic 4631 was tested and identified as a carrier, and this led the Association to test a DNA sample from 3F Epic 4631 to determine NH status. The resulting test indicated 3F Epic 4631 is an NH carrier. It’s important to note that all actions by the breeder and owners of 3F Epic 4631 were consistent with Association policies on genetic condition testing.

Neuropathic Hydrocephalus is a lethal genetic condition caused by a recessive mutation.

Due to the recent test results, as of 9/7/2018, 3F Epic 4631 is listed by the Association as a carrier of Neuropathic Hydrocephalus, and his progeny will be subject to the policies regarding registration of potential NH carriers. Refer to pages 55-57 in the Breeders Reference Guide for more information. The Association will continue to investigate this issue in a timely manner.
