During June 2014, approximately 65% of hot pepper (Capsicum annuum) plants in a commercial field in Multan district of Pakistan showed symptoms of curling, deformation and interveinal leaf yellowing. Twenty randomly collected symptomatic and 2 asymptomatic leaf samples were collected and tested in the laboratory. The presence of Pepper vein yellows virus (PeVYV) was detected on the tested leaf samples based on various molecular analyses. This is thought to be the first report of PeVYV in Pakistan.
