Three birds aged six weeks belonging to a private farm in Thrissur district were brought to the department of Veterinary Microbiology, college of Veterinary and Animal sciences, Mannuthy for disease investigation. The owner reported that a total of about 50animals in the team experienced severe respiratory distress. The clinical signs observed in the ducks characterized by coryza, conjunctivitis, respiratory rales and sneezing. The post mortem lesions in lungs were suggestive of chronic respiratory disease (CRD). On culturing the clinical samples, no bacteria could be isolated. Lung tissue was processed and subjected to polymerase chain reaction (PCR) targeting Mycoplasma gallisepticum species. Samples revealed amplicon size of 183 bp.

Keywords: Chronic respiratory disease (CRD), Mycoplasma gallisepticum, Ducks, Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)
