Abstract
This study was carried out with the aim of identifying aerobic bacterial species involved in lung lesions of one -humped adult camels (Camelusdromedarius) slaughtered at Elsalam abattoir enterprise, Khartoum State .The study was conducted from February to May 2011. All camels were originated from various pastoral areas. A total of 100 camel lungs were inspected at random during the study period, of which 60 (60%) possessed gross pulmonary lesions. All pneumonic lungs with lesions were processed for bacteriology and bacterial growth was only obtained from 52(81.5%) of the pneumonic lung samples. A total of 135 bacterial species were isolated and identified to the species level using cultural characteristics and biochemical tests. These included coagulase- negative staphylococci (12.7%), Staphylococcus aureus(8%), Streptococcus spp. (17.8%), Micrococcus spp. (7.4%) Corynebacteria spp.(8.1%), Actinomyces spp. (14.1) Bacillus spp. (15.5%) Escherichia coli (3%) Klebsiella pneumonia (3%), Aeromonas hydrophila(3.7%), Proteus mirabilis (3.7%) Alcaligenes faecalis(1.5%) Kingella kingae(3.7%). Some of these are potential pathogens that could induce respiratory diseases and other isolates might induce Respiratory diseases under stressful conditions.
