Swollen head syndrome in chickens: a preliminary report on the isolation of a possible aetiological agent


Journal of the South African Veterinary Association 60(4): 221-222
Swollen head syndrome in chickens: a preliminary report on the isolation of a possible aetiological agent
In August, 1988, the swollen head syndrome was diagnosed clinically in 18-day-old broilers, in test houses well isolated from commercial farms, after a feed transfer from a commercial farm. As in other outbreaks, about 50% of the birds developed respiratory signs, some of these developed swelling of the infraorbital sinus, but only about 1% of the birds had swollen heads.
