Aujeszky's disease (AD) is an herpesvirus infection, caused by the pseudorabies virus (PRV), primarily in swine and present in Santa Catarina State (SC) since 1984. Due to the impacts of AD in the pork export, breeder's trade and productivity losses, an eradication program, financed by industry and swine producers association, has successfully eradicated the AD of swine herds in SC State. The last case of AD in the State was identified in July of 2004.
