Abstract:

In the last few years, emu farming has gained more attention and popularity among the poultry farmers of southern India especially Andhra Pradesh. Infectious Coryza is primarily considered to be a disease of chicken even though the outbreaks have also been reported from guinea fowl and turkeys. An acute respiratory disease with high morbidity and mortality among emu chicks was reported from an emu farm located in the outskirts of Tirupati, Andhra Pradesh. The clinical signs observed were coughing, sneezing along with severe swelling of infra orbital sinus and adjacent paranasal sinuses suggestive of infectious coryza. The presence of Avibacterium paragallium in the samples was confirmed by PCR. In the best of our knowledge this is the first report of infectious coryza in emu birds.
