Abstract

Three 7-wk-old Bobwhite quail were submitted for necropsy to the Douglas branch of the Georgia Poultry Laboratory Network. Grossly, one bird had multiple white foci in the liver and a mild airsacculitis. In this quail there were multiple hepatic granulomas that contained mats of filamentous bacteria easily seen in hematoxylin- and eosin-stained histologic sections. These bacteria were negative with period acid-Schiff and were not acid fast. Bacteria were gram-positive but were most evident on Warthin-Starry silver-stained sections. The appearance and histochemical characteristics of these bacteria are most consistent with Eubacterium tortuosum.
