  2. 2. CAMPYLOBACTERIOSIS Synonyms Vibriosis, Epizootic abortion. It is a contagious venereal disease of cattle characterized by infertility with repeat breeding. Campylobacter” is derived from Greek word for “Curve rod” because of curved or spiral shape morphology of bacteria
  3. 3. EtiologySpecies Host & diseaseC.foetus subsp.venerealis. Endometritis, sterility, abortion in cattleC. foetus subsp.foetus. Abortion in sheep. Possible cause of enteritisC.jejuni . Abortion in sheep. Enteritis in Humans monkey Cattle, foals, dogs, cats, and fowlsC.coli Enteritis in humans, monkey and fowlC.pylori Gastritis in children and monkey
