Porcine dermatitis and nephropathy syndrome (PDNS) is broadly discussed as a porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2)-associated disease, although PCV2, in contrast to postweaning multisystemic wasting syndrome (PMWS), has to date not been proven to be the aetiologic agent. The clinical signs, gross post-mortem and histopathological changes observed in affected pigs, were similar to those previously described for PDNS. As in previous reports, the lesions were associated with PCV2 infection, which was demonstrated by in situ hybridization method.
