Department of Veterinary Medicine, Assam Agricultural University, Guwahati, India.


Forty-seven Staphylococcus hyicus strains, one each from 47 of 81 cattle examined, were isolated from cutaneous lesions on different parts of the body. Nineteen of the strains were isolated in pure culture and the rest were isolated in association with either other staphylococci or microfilariae or mange mites. Three out of 10 representative strains produced cutaneous lesions when inoculated intradermally into rabbits.
