Abstract:
Porcine circovirus-2 (PCV-2) is one of the important viral disease causing severe economic losses to swine production globally. The PCV2 has been associated with various clinical manifestations like PCV2 systemic disease (PMWS), enteric disease, lung disease, porcine dermatitis, nephropathy syndrome and reproductive failure, they are collectively called as porcine circoviral associated diseases (PCVAD). The disease can be encountered as sporadic affecting few animals or herd problem affecting large number of animals. The present research work was designed with the objectives of studying the gross and histopathological changes of PCV2 in piglets, detection of PCV2 from tissues by Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR). In the present study, fifty two samples were screened for the detection of PCV2 by PCR. Total of eight piglets were found to be positive for PCV2 by PCR.
