Ten outbreaks of swine erysipelas were studied in 9 municipalities in Minas Gerais State [Brazil]. In 1 outbreak, the disease was characterized clinically by a polyarthritis in animals 3-6 mo. old, while in the others, the septicemic form was predominant in fattening and mature animals. The disease was successfully controlled using a bacterin prepared with the organism isolated from those outbreaks.
