Clinical expression of porcine circovirus 2 (PCV2) infection in swine may result in several distinct syndromes and diseases including post-weaning multisystemic wasting syndrome (PMWS), porcine dermatitis and nephropathy syndrome (PDNS), reproductive failure, porcine respiratory disease complex, granulomatous enteritis, necrotizing lymphadenitis, and possibly exudative epidermitis. Association of PCV2 with congenital tremor in piglets is still controversial. The extent of the involvement of PCV2 in swine disease other than PMWS is currently poorly understood. This review concentrates on PCV-2-associated syndromes and diseases other than PMWS.
