proliferative enteropathy
of swine, see porcine intestinal adenomatosis; a disease of weaned foals presenting with lethargy, weight loss, a varying degree of fever, inappetance, a potbellied appearance with a rough coat, colic, diarrhea and ventral edema associated with a pronounced hypoproteinemia. The disease is a protein losing enteropathy associated with a proliferation of crypt epithelial cells in the terminal small intestine and thickening of the intestine at this site. The causative agent, Lawsonia intracellularis, is present in proliferating cells. The disease responds to a long treatment course with erythromycin and rifampicin.
proliferative exudative pneumonia
of lambs see enzootic pneumonia.
proliferative hemorrhagic enteropathy
an acute or peracute disease of recently weaned pigs and also of replacement gilts. Characterized by anemia and dysentery, and a proliferative, hemorrhagic lesion in the terminal ileum and proximal colon, and a high death rate. The underlying intestinal abnormality is porcine intestinal adenomatosis caused by Lawsonia intracellularis but the reason for the hemorrhagic complication is not known.
