porcine dermatitis and nephropathy syndrome (PDNS)
recently described and believed to be an immune complex mediated disease. Porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) can be identified in a high percentage of cases. Occurs principally in grower/finisher pigs. Pigs may show extensive purplish red, slightly raised lesions of various sizes and shapes over the chest, abdomen, thighs and forelegs. Case fatality is usually high. At postmortem, the kidneys are swollen, pale and mottled with many small hemorrhages showing through the surface. There are enlarged lymph nodes and hemorrhages at multiple sites. The symptoms and postmortem findings are very similar to classical swine fever.

porcine reproductive and respiratory syndrome (PRRS)
an arterivirus disease of pigs first recognized in the USA in 1987 and subsequently in many other countries; characterized by severe reproductive failure in sows and respiratory disease in young pigs and an influenza-like syndrome in grower finisher pigs. Acute phases of the disease typically last 2 to 3 months after which reproductive parameters often return to normal or exhibit decreases in the farrowing rate and irregular returns to estrus. Numerous strains of the virus are reported in the USA and Europe with differrences in pathogenicity. Prior to a consensus, called also mystery swine disease, swine infertility respiratory syndrome (SIRS), porcine epidemic abortion and respiratory syndrome (PEARS), blue ear disease, and Heko-Heko.
porcine respiratory coronavirus
closely related but distinct from transmissible gastroenteritis (TGE) virus. Causes a mild, sometimes inapparent, respiratory infection, but no gastrointestinal disease

porcine stress syndrome (PSS)
is an acute death syndrome in pigs occurring usually after transportation, fighting, exercise or even high environmental temperature. If signs are observed they include increasing dyspnea, tremor and stiffness, severe hyperthermia and a rapid onset of rigor mortis after death. A genetic disorder, more common in breeds where there has been selection for muscling. Homozygous recessive (Hal gene) pigs are susceptible to develop the syndrome following stress. Heterozygous pigs are at risk to develop pale soft exudative pork (PSE) at slaughter. Halothane testing or genotyping can be used to determine the genotype of pigs for breeding. Called also herztod, pale soft exudative pork, malignant hyperthermia, transport death, acute back muscle necrosis.
