Salmonella are important pathogenic bacteria infecting humans or animals. Different Salmonella serovars may either infect a variety of animals or be restricted to a single host. Salmonella Enteritidis can infect multiple hosts including chicken and humans whereas Salmonella Gallinarum can only infect chickens, though they are very similar to each other genetically and both of them are belong to serogroup D.
Egg-associated salmonellosis is an important public health problem in the United States and other countries. Salmonella Enteritidis, can be inside perfectly normal-appearing eggs, and if the eggs are eaten raw or undercooked, the bacterium can cause illness. The serotype Gallinarum can be further divided into two biovars: bv. Gallinarum and bv. Pullorum. The two biovars are both non-motile and have nearly identical biochemical characteristics except that bv. Pullorum can produce rapid decarboxylation of ornithine. Clinically, they both infect chickens only, with bv. Gallinarum causing typhoid but bv. Pullorum causing pullorum disease.
