Summary: The Porcine ReproducPve and Respiratory Syndrome (PRRS) was first recognized clinically in the EU in 1987, and thereaYer it spread through Europe and America. The virus has two genotypes: the type 1 which is predominant in Europe (EU) and the type 2 which is predominant in North America and Asia (NA). Objec*ve The aim of this study was to evaluate the dynamics of PRRSV in pig farms, to determine if both genotypes of PRRS virus are circulaPng, and to esPmate its prevalence in pig farms of Costa Rica
