Clostridial infection in pigs (Special 2005)
The most important member of the clostridial genus causing signs in pigs is
Clostridium perfringens. Besides necrotising enteritis in piglets and mild to
moderate diarrhoea in post-weanning pigs, enterohemorrhagic syndrome (EHS) has
been associated with clostridial infection. In about half of all EHS cases, C.
perfringens can be isolated.
