The present case reports the detection of Salmonella (S.) Choleraesuis var. Kunzendorf and porcine circovirus type 2 in an organic fattening pig suffering from septicaemic salmonellosis and porcine dermatitis and nephropathy syndrome. Six weeks after pigs had been housed in an organic fattening farm, an increase in mortality, diarrhea and coughing was observed. In recent years, S. choleraesuis var. Kunzendorf has been frequently detected in wild boars in Germany, whereas the same serovar did not play an important role in the Western European domestic pig population. A direct transmission of this serovar from wild boars to domestic pigs in this case could not be proven. However, because wild boars are important reservoirs for the spread of epizootic diseases to the domestic pig population, this case emphasises the importance of taking epidemiological relationships under consideration and to comply with biosecurity measures according to German law (Schweinehaltungshygieneverordnung).
