Abstract
A multiresistant Morganella morganii subsp. morganii strain was isolated in pure culture from pneumonic lesions of a 3-week-old Belgian Blue calf, originating from a farm coping with chronic diarrhoea and respiratory tract disease as well as increased mortality in 1-3-week-old animals. Additionally, high numbers of Clostridium perfringens were isolated from the jejunum and a Giardia infection was diagnosed. Moreover, necropsy findings and histological examinations indicated nutritional myodegeneration. M. morganii is an opportunistic pathogen that is mainly associated with postoperative and nosocomial infections in immunosuppressed individuals.
