Tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) is a viral, arthropode-borne, potentially fatal disease of the central nervous system causing meningoencephalomyelitis or isolated meningitis and affecting mainly humans, but also monkeys, dogs and horses. This zoonotic disease is caused by the tick-borne encephalitis virus (TBEV) and occurs in endemic areas across Europe and Asia. TBEV is transmitted by 11 tick species, but only 2 species are important vectors: Ixodes ricinus and Ixodes persulcatus2. Although TBE in humans has been studied extensively, there are only a limited number of reports on TBEV infections in animals, especially horses. In Spain, TBEV infection is currently regarded as an exotic disease and surveillance in humans, ticks or animals is not performed, even though the vector is present throughout the country
