The aim of this study was to compare the sensitivity of different in vivo and post-mortem samples collected from finishing pigs under field conditions on Mycoplasma hyopneumoniae detection by PCR. Results suggested that tracheobronchial secretions and bronchial swabs conferred the highest sensitivity in vivo and post-mortem, respectively.
