Description:From the “Illustrated Manual for the Recognition and Diagnosis of Certain Animal Diseases”, published in 1982, by the Mexico-United States Commission for the Prevention of Foot and Mouth Disease, this photograph depicts a close-up, ventral view of a porcine (pig) foot, which displayed a large area of epithelial detachment due to a case of swine vesicular disease (SVD).
Caused by a virus belonging to the family Picornaviridae, and the genus Enterovirus, “SVD is contagious disease of swine indistinguishable in the field from foot-and-mouth disease (FMD), vesicular stomatitis (VS), and vesicular exanthema of swine (VES). It is a relatively new disease, with its first appearance described in 1966.”
