Abstract

Histopathological examination of small and large intestine from piglets with enteritis has shown the presence of epithelial multinucleate syncytia. Syncytia were associated with a specific type of atypical rotavirus infection, determined by electron microscopy and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis analysis of viral RNA. The observations are consistent with similar previously described natural or experimental infections in other animals.
