Despite recent greatly improved knowledge of the intestinal spirochaetes, pigs continue to become infected by these troublesome microorganisms, and the associated diseases still can represent a continued constraint to efficient production in many piggeries. The occurrence and the perception of the importance of these spirochaetal infections varies in different parts of the world. The purpose of this paper is to provide a brief update on the intestinal spirochaetes, emphasising recent findings of relevance to pig veterinarians, and pointing out areas where more effort needs to be concentrated to allow improved control of these infections.
