To investigate porcine parvovirus 5 (PPV5) infections in swine herds in China, clinical specimens of piglet lungs were examined for the presence of PPV5 using a polymerase chain reaction method. A strain of PPV5 was detected, and its genome was sequenced and analyzed. In the sequence alignment and phylogenetic analysis, the Chinese PPV5 strain clustered into a distinct clade with the reference PPV5 strains. These results provide direct evidence that PPV5 is present in pigs in China. Extensive epidemiological studies are warranted to determine the geographic distribution of PPV5 in China.
