This paper reviews the laboratory investigations that led us to isolate the Lelystad
virus and demonstrate that this virus causes mystery swine disease. We describe: 1)
isolating the virus from the disease; 2) characterizing the virus as a new enveloped
RNA virus; 3) reproducing the disease experimentally with the isolated Lelystad virus;
4) isolating the virus from the experimentally induced disease.
