Abstract / Description of output

Postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome was diagnosed in one out of 78 investigated Austrian farms. Nine animals were found to be PMWS positive. Clinical signs were wasting and dyspnoe with a mortality rate of 10 to 15%. The animals showed histomorphologic changes characteristic for PMWS, such as lymphadenitis, interstitial pneumonia, nephritis and hepatitis. Porcine circovirus type 2 infections were confirmed by PCR and in situ hybridisation. Aggregates of nonenveloped, icosaedral virions could be shown in the inclusionbodies by electron microscopy.
