Patches on the skin of a fattening pig seen at an abattoir. Which is the most probable cause for this lesion?



incorrect answer

Skin lesions found on a fattening pig at an abattoir. They are the typical lesions of the cutaneous form of erysipelas, caused by the bacterium Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae. The clinical picture is characterised by the emergence of small, raised and rhomboidal (diamond-shaped) red areas (erythema) and oedema on the skin that can become necrotic in their central area, giving place to crusts. The tips of the ears and the tail can also become necrotic.
