In a batch of a 100 mixed breed 6 months old pigs, generalized skin lesions were observed, multifocal, rounded, 1 cm in diameter, reddish and with a darker central area.

The morphology of the lesions together with the microscopic observation of a perivascular eosinophilic inflammatory infiltrate is highly suggestive of insect bite dermatitis.

This lesion alters the organoleptic characteristics of the skin, but does not pose a public health risk.

Fragments of skin with multiple rounded, reddish lesions and with a dark point in the center.
