Abstract: A field study was conducted in 20 Belgian pig herds suffering from chronic intestinal disease to provide information on the epidemiology and pathology of porcine proliferative enteropathy (PPE), an infectious disease caused by Lawsonia intracellularis. From each herd, a representative number of fattening pigs were examined in the slaughterhouse for the presence of heal thickening. Transverse sections of five thickened pea per herd were investigated for the histopathological lesions suggestive for PPE and for presence of L. intracellularis using Warthin-Starry silver staining.
