Avidin-biotin-complex (ABC) method for Aujeszky's disease viral antigen was applied to cases suspected of hog cholera. Paraffin-embedded specimens of twenty-five such cases were retrieved. Aujeszky's disease viral antigen was detected in cerebrum (1/18), cerebellum (6/20), medulla oblongata (1/3) and tonsils (2/9). Totally, the viral antigen was found in eleven cases out of twenty-five. These results strongly suggested the possibility of concurrent infection of Aujeszky's disease and hog cholera.
