First porcine abortion associated with Trueperella abortisuis in the United Kingdom
The present study reports the isolation of Trueperella abortisuis from pooled fetal stomach contents of aborted swine fetuses from a single sow in North-East Scotland. The organism was not isolated in purity; however, a diagnosis of fetopathy due to T. abortisuis was made due to predominant growth of the bacterium in addition to confirmative histopathological findings. As far as the authors are aware, this is the first report of the isolation of T. abortisuis from porcine abortion material in the United Kingdom.
