Infections with strains of Staphylococcus sciuri are a potential threat to animal and public health, and a cause for considerable concern.

We isolated and identified S. sciuri as a pathogen from an acute outbreak of exudative epidermitis in piglets for further genetic identification using experimental infections. The results of this study showed that S. sciuri strain NJ1306 reproduced exudative epidermitis in experimentally infected 5-day-old piglets. The isolated bacteria also caused sudden death in BALB/c mice following intraperitoneal injection with 5×108 CFU of the isolate. The data indicated that strain NJ1306 of S. sciuri was pathogenic to piglets and mice, and the study provided the first known report of clinical lung lesions and endocarditis in piglets due to S. sciuri.
