Abstract

Erysipelothrix rhusiopathiae was isolated from 62 of 94 swine suffering from arthritis. Its isolation rates were43% from the synovial fluid of the joint, 16% from the lymph node, and 1% from the kidney. Of 50 strains examined, 38 belonged to serovar 2, and 10 to serovar 1. The 50 strains were all sensitive to penicillin, erythromycin, oleandomycin, lincomycin, and chloramphenicol, but resistant to kanamycin, gentamicin, colistin, and sulfisoxazole. They were sensitive to tetracycline, except three which were resistant.
