Pityriasis rosea in a 2-month old pig is described. Lesions were confined to the abdomen and groin. They consisted of raised, erythematous papules with distinct borders. Microscopic examination of the lesions revealed a nonspecific dermatitis with acanthosis, moderate infiltration of mononuclear cells and eosinophils in the upper dermis. The known occurrence of the disease will help differentiate the condition from other dermatoses.
