Abstract

Rhodococcus equi was isolated from the submaxillary lymph nodes of wild boars (Sus scrofa) in Wakayama and Hyogo, Japan, with a high prevalence. Rhodococcus equi isolation rates between locations, sexes, or body weights were not different, except in the prevalence of vapB-positive R. equi between locations.
