Abstract

In this pilot study, 2,284 small terrestrial mammals from five areas in Western Slovakia were investigated for the presence of Campylobacter jejuni/coli. A total of 167 (7.3%) strains were isolated. Prevalenceof Campylobacter sp. was found to be 11.1% in Apodemus flavicollis, 7.7% in Pitymys subterraneus, 7.3% in Apodemus sylvaticus, 7.2% in Clethrionomys glareolus, 4.9% in Sorer araneus, and 1.2% in Microtus arvalis. No Campylobacter jejuni/coii was recovered from Sorer minutus and Crocidura leucodon. Among 167 isolates of Campylobacter, 51 strains (30.5%) were classified as Campylobacter jejuni, 10 (6.0%) as Campylobacter coli and 106 (63.5%) as Campylobacter jejuni/coli. Seasonal incidence rates of Campylobacter isolates from small terrestrial mammals showed two peaks, one in the spring (8.6%) and one in autumn (9.7%). Campylobacter jejuni/coli has been isolated from all five localities. These results indicate that Campylobacter jejuni/coli has a widespread distribution among small terrestrial mammals in Slovakia.
