Resumen An outbreak of ornithosis in duck workers is reported. A serological survey showed that 61% of them (compared with 23% of control workers) had chlamydia group antibody titres of ≥ 1:8. 9% of duck workers had antibody titres ≥ 1:32 and a clinical illness suggestive of ornithosis. The proportions of seropositive tests and clinical attack rates were highest in workers eviscerating ducks and lowest in farm workers.
