Sites Of Infection Of Emeria
Sites of infection of Emeria spp defined where Emeria spp multiply in the intestinal tract of poultry. There are eight species but they also host-specific and have a specific sites of infection of Emeria. One Emeria species can not grow in other hosts like Emeria tenella only causing bloody diarrhea in chicken but never other species like Turkey, duck, pigeon, etc.
Importance of Infection Location
Coccidiosis is a protozoal disease caused by single-celled Emeria spp in poultry. Simply Emeria called also coccidia. There are eight active species found in poultry. Chicken is the only natural host of coccidiosis. Emeria spp has a complex life cycle which is a continuous process that developed into host chicken.
Emeria not only host-specific but also tissue-specific. For example, E. acervulina only developed in the epithelium of the duodenum but not other organs. So Every Emeria spp has one site of infection in the intestinal tract of a chicken.
Site infection of Emeria spp
There are seven important species. In addition, Eimeria hagani, first described in 1938, has only rarely been described since. Eimeria mivati, described in 1965, is now considered to be a spurious species comprising a mixture of E. acervulina and Eimeria mitis.
the lesion may be increased in size but the development of Emeria remains the same site of infection.
