Unilateral scrotal pyocele in ram caused by Staphylococcus capitis

Australian Veterinary Journal publish this investigation article

December 1st, 2009

A massive unilateral scrotal pyocele caused by Staphylococcus capitis in a 6-year-old ram is reported. Ultrasound examination of the right hemiscrotum showed an irregular hyperechoic mass in an anechoic fluid. A dense exudate was collected from the scrotum for microbiological analysis. Grossly, there was an extensive greenish purulent exudate and a completely atrophied right testis. Coagulase-negative S. capitis was isolated in pure culture. To the authors` knowledge, this is the first report of genital infection by S. capitis in rams. This microorganism should be included in the differential diagnosis of ovine genital infections
