Abstract

Arcanobacterium pyogenes was associated with necrotizing pneumonia; mandibular osteomyelitis; peritonitis; and hepatic, pulmonary, renal, and subcutaneous abscessation in a group of captive blackbuck (Antilope cervicapra). Males were more frequently (73.3%) affected than females. Infection with A. pyogenes was fatal or necessitated euthanasia in 15 of 16 (93.7%) cases. Deaths associated with A. pyogenes occurred most frequently (60%) during winter.
