Abstract

Abstract Due to an expanding poultry industry in the Sudan and the importance of poultry as a reservoir for salmonella, an investigation was carried out over eighteen months to determine the presence of salmonella in the domestic fowl. Forty-three salmonella isolates were recovered from 1104 samples. The isolates belonged to 17 serotypes, 16 of which are reported for the first time from the Sudan.
