A Maggot Mystery in Emergence of Ignatzschineria Bacteraemia in a
Febrile White Yorkshire Pig Short running Title: Ignatzschineria spp.
bacteremia associated with maggot infested Pig
We report the incidence of bacteraemia associated with
Ignatzschineria spp. for the first time from animal clinical case
presumably, as a post complication of maggot wound in a White Yorkshire
pig. We described a clinical history of a febrile adult white Yorkshire
pig and the isolation of Ignatzschineria spp. from blood sample.
The isolate was characterized phenotypically and further identified by
16S rRNA sequence analysis. Its occurrence may be misdiagnosed in
veterinary hospitals especially in low-resource settings, often leading
to the underreporting of such emerging infections, since the diagnostic
facilities are still in very primitive phase in developing countries.
More information on speciation is needed with much about the
epidemiology and pathogenesis of this emerging pathogen in order to
explore its role in the lives of animals and humans. Novel pathogens
continue to emerge in human, domestic animal, wildlife and plant
populations, yet the population dynamics of this kind of biological
invasion remain poorly understood. This rapid communication may redirect
the scientific community working for animal and human health worldwide
to unveil such rare emerging infections.
