Four hundred and ninety-four swine sera, obtained from non-vaccinated animals against swine erysipelas (coming from eight different microregions in the State of Mina 3 Gerais), were examined by means of an agglutination assay. The titers obtained varied from 1:1 to 1:160. Sixty sera (12.41%) were found to be positive, titers being equal or superior to 1:80, which were considered specific in the diagnosis of the disease.
