Abstract

Salmonella enterica Ituri is an uncommon serotype associated with poultry disease. One of the serotype isolated from a poultry disease in Nigeria was characterized by serotyping and screening for the presence of Salmonella genomic island 1(SGI1) as a possible factor responsible for its involvement in a poultry disease outbreak. Despite the similarities in the antibiotic sensitivities patterns of the Salmonella Ituri serotypes with some SGI1-bearing serotypes, it does not bear the SGI1. This is the first report of association of this Salmonella serotype with avian paratyphoidal disease.

Keywords: Salmonella enterica Ituri, serotype, Salmonella genomic island 1 (SGI1)
