Abstract

Present communication describes the isolation of Acinetobacter iwoffii from two cases of broiler
chickens, which died of respiratory distress, diarrhoea and leg weakness. The organism was found
resistant to ampicillin, cloxacillin, amoxicillin, doxycycline and cotrimoxazole while as, it was sensitive to gentamicin, ciprofloxacin and pefloxacin. The consumption of undercooked meat from such infected chicken may lead to human infection.
