Abstract

A freshly dead 7 months old turkey from a population of 7 turkeys and 15 chickens with a
history of fighting and head lesions was presented for postmortem examination and
diagnosis. Postmortem examination revealed swollen head, subcutaneous head
abscesses and foot pad abscess (bumble foot) with no evidence of septicaemia and
systemic infection. Diagnosis of staphylococcosis was based on isolation and
identification of pure cultures of the Staphylococcus aureus from head and foot samples
following standard procedures. Antimicrobial sensitivity test showed that Staphylococcus
aureus isolate was resistant to ampicillin, cefuroxime and streptomycin but susceptible to
ciprofloxacin, perfloxacin, erythromycin and ceftriaxone. The cause of death was likely
physical rather than infectious. This report showed that head swelling and bumble foot
could occur simultaneously in turkey staphylococcosis
