OMIA 000271-9823 : Dermatosis vegetans in Sus scrofa

Mendelian trait/disorder: unknown

Considered a defect: yes

Species-specific name: Club foot

Species-specific description: This disorder occurs only in Landrace pigs. It is a well-characterised syndrome comprising skin lesions on the body, swollen feet (club foot), and multinucleate giant cells (MGC) in the lungs, associated with fatal pneumonia. Evensen (1993) showed that the giant cells in the lungs of affected pigs are derived from mesenchymal cells, with a monocyte/macrophage origin.

Inheritance: Breeding data support single-locus autosomal recessive inheritance (Flatla et al., 1961).
