Porcine Dermatitis & Nephropathy Syndrome

Porcine Dermatitis & Nephropathy Syndrome (PDNS) was fist described in the 1993 as a sporadic condition affecting individual finisher pigs.At that stage it was a sporadic condition affecting individual pigs. It has been described in many parts of the world,but more recently it has caused increasing problems apparently associated or closely related to Porcine Multisystemic Wasting Syndrome (PMWS).Under these circumstances it has changed to a more significant condition affecting large numbers of pigs.It is frequently seen as a complexed problem with PMWS and at times chronic cases of the two syndromes can be difficult to separate.It is important to note that PDNS and PMWS can occur together,following each other or independently of each other.

    Isn't dermatitis a skin disease?What's the connection between that and PMWS & PDN??????? Obviously somethings catching! It's secondary my dear Watson.
    Can you be mroe specific in the difference betwen dermattis and PMWS and PDN. I am not sure that I know that difference. Does it affect the pig internally or externally or both. Does it kill the pig
