Porcine Intestinal Adenomatosis: A Clinical Review
Porcine Intestinal Adenomatosis (PIA) is a disease affecting the alimentary tract of pigs. Previous literature has described several syndromes relating to PIA, including Regional Ileitis (RI), Necrotic Enteritis (NE), and Proliferative Hemorrhagic Enteropathy (PHE).
