Haemophilus parasuis, an organism dependent upon nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) or V-factor for in-vitro growth, is the causative agent of porcine polyserositis and arthritis (Glasser's disease) (Nicolet, 1992). The principal lesions associated with this disease are fibrinous or serofibrinous meningitis, serositis, pleuritis, pericarditis, peritonitis and arthritis that can occur in various combinations or occasionally singly (Nicolet, 1992).
