- Mycoplasmosis is a disease caused by M gallisepticum which is commonly involved in chronic respiratory disease in chickens.
- In layers and breeders, this disease is usually subclinical but can cause a reduction in the number of eggs laid.
- Turkeys are more susceptible to mycoplasmosis, frequently resulting in swollen infraorbital sinuses.
- Note that mycoplasmosis affect chickens and turkeys worldwide, causing the most significant economic losses
