In this study we detail the detection and genetic analysis of a novel porcine boca-like virus (PBo-likeV) in archival sera and tissue samples from pigs from farms in Great Britain. We also investigate the distribution of porcine circovirus type 2 (PCV2) genotypes and Torque teno sus virus (TTSuV) genogroups 1 and 2 in combination with this novel PBo-likeV. PBo-likeV was detected in over 70% of all tissues investigated. Over 24% of all tissues recovered from PMWS-affected animals had all viruses present and 25% of tissues recovered from non-PMWS-affected pigs were positive for all 4 viruses.
