Diseases of poultry, Edition 8: Case history and sample collection: This variation might be due to the fact that their work was on disease outbreak and may also be due to the laboratory techniques employed; unlike the present study, they used antibody detection technique where there are numerous false positives due to cross protections [ 48 ]. Chickens are primarily affected, although the disease has occasionally been reported in pheasants and guinea fowls Charlton et al.

Buchanan RE, Gibbons, eds. No outbreak occurred during the study although there were numerous chicken showing sign of coryza.

Avian Diseases, 38 2: Two of five Q3 and Q9 isolates showed low fermentation of lactose. This agrees with the report of Thitisak et al.

Susceptible birds exposed to infected birds may show signs of the disease within hours Rimler et al. Journal of Clinical Microbiology, Characterization and pathogenicity of Haemophilus paragallinarum serotype C parwgallinarum local chickens in Taiwan.

The clinical signs showed in the chicken suspected IC are facial swelling or facial edema, discharge from nasal sinuses, conjunctivitis, and decreased egg production [ 27 – 29 ].

The incubation period of IC varies 24 to 48 hours after experimental inoculation of the organism. Isolation of serovar C-3 Haemphilus paragallinarum from Zimbabwe: Clinically, IC is usually characterized by high morbidity rates.

Some studies show that susceptibility increases four weeks post hatching. Title Serotype C infection. Some clinical signs that are commonly seen in IC are rhinitis, facial swelling or edema, anorexia, and retarded growth in young poultry [ 5 – 7 ]. Resistance to re-exposure among individual birds may develop as early as 2 weeks after initial exposure by the intrasinus route.


The products of most cells, heterophil, and macrophages may be responsible for the severe vascular changes and cell damage leading to coryza. In susceptible chickens the symptoms first appear about hours after exposure to infection.

A cross sectional study on paraagallinarum coryza was conducted in Jimma, Ethiopia, from November to April with the objectives of determining the prevalence of infectious coryza, and associated paraglalinarum. The highest incidence was observed January to April. The disease is seen more frequently on intensive chicken farms, especially on large-scale egg production complexes and breeding farms Charlton et al.

The isolates were showing true dependence on NAD and were further purified and maintained by subculturing on Haemophilus agar and Haemophilus broth.
