ABSTRACT
The article discusses the relation between a bovine viral diarrhoea virus type 2 (BVDV-2) in dairy cattle in Belgium and hypervirulent viruses in North America. Outbreaks of severe acute disease caused by BVDV-2 occurred in North America between 1993 and 1995. The cases of a cow which died from uterine and intestinal haemorrhages and a blue bull with mucosal disease are described. The findings obtained from polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification and sequencing of the 5' untranslated region (UTR) and nucleoprotein (Npro) region are detailed.
