However, very little is known about chlamydial infections in birds in our region.
In the present study, we examined 28 clinically normal birds in illegal captivity that were confiscated in the province of Córdoba, Argentina.
The objective was to detect Chlamydophila spp.
in cloacal swabs by genetic analysis of the ompA gene.
Nested-PCR of the ompA gene identified five samples as Chlamydophila pecorum and the sequence analysis demonstrated the presence of the ompA gene of C.
pecorum in these b...
