Details of a severe outbreak of M. crocodyli infection in farmed
crocodiles are reported. The outbreak was suspected to have been
precipitated by translocation-related stress on the animals brought from
a farm with a known history of M. crocodyli infection. Resorting to the
use of an autogenous vaccine proved more effective in alleviating the
disease manifestations than antibiotic therapy. Prospects of vaccination
in the face of an outbreak are discussed.
