M. synoviae (MS) was first recognized as an acute to chronic infection of chickens and turkeys that produced an exudative tendinitis and synovitis (infectious synovitis); it now occurs most commonly as a subclinical infection of the upper respiratory tract, especially in multi-age layer flocks. M. synoviae infection is also a complication of air sacculitis in association with Newcastle disease or infectious bronchitis. It is distributed worldwide and is seen primarily in chickens and turkeys, but ducks, geese, guinea fowl, parrots, pheasants, and quail may also be susceptible. In recent years, it seems that M. synoviae had taken over the role of Mycoplasma gallisepticum in commercial poultry. Apart from air sacculitis and synovitis, eggshell apex abnormalities (EAA) and egg drop syndrome resulting from M. synoviae infection have been encountered worldwide.
