Two-to 3-month-old piglets raised in a semi-high floor pen showed anemia, emaciation and bloody diarrhea after weaning, and 40 of 400 animals died. Three dead and autopsied cases were severely parasitized with Trichuris suis in the cecum and colon. While transient recovery was seen in the surviving animals after drug treatment, similar symptoms appeared at 4 to 5 months of age and further 20 animals died. Two dead cases examined were parasitized with T. suis and Salmonella choleraesuis was detected from the lung, kidney, liver and jejunal and cecal contents in one of them.
