Özet

A total of 584 lung samples of slaughtered sheep having clinical symptoms of pneumonia were investigated microbiologically. Out of the 584 samples, 66 (11.3%) Mannheimia (Pasteurella) haemolytica strains were isolated on the basis of cultural, morphological and biochemical characteristics. Sixty- six isolates of M. haemolytica were biotyped by carbohydrate fermentation tests and serotyped by coagglutination and indirect haemagglutination (IHA) tests. Out of the 66 M. haemolytica strains, 57 (86.3%) were detected as biotype A, and 9 (13.6%) were biotype T. The 66 M. haemolytica isolates were serotyped as follows by coagglutination test: 13 (19.6%) A2, 11 (16.6%) A1, 9 (13.6%) A6, 7 (10.6%) A9, 4 (6.0%) A5, 4 (6.0%) A7, 4 (6.0%) A12, 3 (4.5%) A8, 1 (1.5%) T4, 1 (1.5%) A13, and 1 (1.5%) T15. Of the M. haemolytica strains, 14 (21.2%) belonged to serotype A2, 11 (16.6%) to serotype A1, 10 (15.1%) to serotype A6, 7 (10.6%) to serotype A9, 4 (6.0%) to serotype A5, 4 (6.0%) to serotype A7, 4 (6.0%) to serotype A12, 4 (6.0%) to serotype A8, 1 (1.5%) to serotype T4, 1 (1.5%) to serotype A13 and 1 (1.5%) to serotype T15 by IHA test. Eight (12.1%) and 5 (7.5%) isolates were unserotyped by coagglutination and IHA tests, respectively. T3, T10, A11, A14 and A16 serotypes were not determined.
