“…). Fishermen, fish‐handlers, abattoir workers, farmers, housewives and veterinarians have an increased risk of infection (Reboli & Farrar ). Despite a diverse range of diseases caused by E. rhusiopathiae in many animal species and humans, E. rhusiopathiae has not been reported to cause disease in cultured fish although it has been commonly isolated from slime or mucus of fish and fish tanks (Wood ; Conklin & Steele ; Carson ; Wang et al .…”

“…Colony morphology, microscopic appearance and biochemical profile of the isolates were compared with the results of previous reports (Reboli and Farrar, 1989). Furthermore, the isolates were confirmed using PCR, amplifying the 16S rRNA gene and further characterisation was done by DNA sequencing and subsequent analysis (Makino et al, 1994;Wang et al, 2002;Bender et al, 2009) With timely identification of the etiology, characterisation and antibiogram, advice for treatment could be made with Benzathine penicillin as intramuscular administration for one week to which the animals responded eventfully and recovered.…”

“…The poultry red mite ( D. gallinae ) has yielded isolates of Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae , a poultry pathogen and potentially zoonotic bacterium, in the context of clinical hen erysipelas (Chirico et al., 2003). Human E. rhusiopathiae infection is associated with occupational exposure to animals and animal products, and usually manifests as skin lesions (erysipeloid), although, uncommonly, systemic disease is seen (Reboli and Farrar, 1989).…”
