HUCHZERMEYER, F W; LANGELET, E  e  PUTTERILL, J F. An outbreak of chlamydiosis in farmed Indopacific crocodiles (Crocodylus porosus). J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2008, vol.79, n.2, pp.99-100. ISSN 2224-9435.

An outbreak of chlamydiosis was diagnosed in hatchling and juvenile Indopacific crocodiles (Crocodylus porosus) on a crocodile farm in Papua New Guinea. The outbreak was characterised by high mortality with hepatitis and exudative conjunctivitis. The agent appears to have been introduced with live wild-caught crocodiles, which are purchased routinely by the farm. Improved quarantine procedures and treatment with tetracycline led to a rapid reduction of losses on the farm.

Palavras-chave : Chlamydia; conjunctivitis; crocodile; hepatitis; tonsillitis.
