Abstract:
Infectious diseases form one of the major impediments to the growth of poultry industry in India. Among the infectious diseases, Infectious coryza (IC) and mycoplasmosis play a significant role causing high economic losses. A concurrent infection of Avibacterium paragallinarum and Mycoplasma gallisepticum in chicken is described in this paper. The bird was presented with a history of whitish diarrhoea, respiratory distress and weight loss. A multiplex polymerase chain reaction (m PCR) was used for the detection of important poultry pathogens and positive results were obtained for IC and mycoplasmosis. This study emphasis the usefulness of m PCR in the rapid detection of various poultry pathogens and also ascertain the need for investigating the presence of mixed infection in poultry.
