Abstract

The authors examined the combined effect of Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae (Mh) and fumonisin B1 (FB1) mycotoxin in pigs. Computed tomography (CT) was applied to follow up the pathological events in the lung. Piglets were infected with Mh, or treated with FB1, or both infected and treated with Mh and FB1. The Mh infection produced lung lesions in all piglets the severity of which was increased by FB1. The CT is a suitable method for studying the pathological conditions in the lower respiratory tract of swine.
