Abstract

A producer in north central Iowa experienced a swine epizootic of pseudorabies. The young piglets exhibited typical central nervous signs of trembling, convulsions, and paddling. Mortality was over 50% in the piglets. Pregnant sows showed increased abortions and stillbirths, finally causing a low 5.4 farrowing average. Diagnosis was by virus isolation, fluorescent antibody tests, and histopathology. No treatment was successful. A review of current literature follows with the case reports.
