A case report on subcutaneous emphysema in Vanaraja Chicken
An eight week old Vanaraja pullet was presented with the history of swelling all over the foot body. On examination a known but rare case of subcutaneous emphysema was diagnosed. Subcutaneous emphysema is known as a disorder caused by air escaping from the respiratory system (air sacs, lungs and trachea) and the air accumulates in the subcutaneous and inflates the skin. Surgical management with simple use of needle punctures or nick incision over the skin and subcutaneous tissue can relief the pain and treat the condition of the bird. Post surgical intervention, oral antibiotic along with B complex supplements resulted in complete recovery within a day.
