Abstract
Pox and Haemoproteus sp. infections in a mute swan are reported. Experimental study of the swan pox isolate indicated that geese were susceptible, but chickens, ducks, and pigeons were resistant to the virus. The distinctive feature of pox infection in the swan was the invasive proliferation deep into the subcutaneous tissues of the face and beak, producing facial deformity and swelling.
