This work provides an update on the existing knowledge about navicular disease. It offers abundant information on the clinical findings that can be obtained using the different diagnostic tests, as well as on the therapeutic approaches indicated for the different conditions associated with the disease, and which in many cases make it possible to successfully prolong the sports life of affected horses.
