Abstract Oral inoculation of one-day-old turkey poults with a crude inoculum of materials shown previously to induce the stunting syndrome (SS) had a severe effect on weight gain and reduced feed efficiency from 1 to 13 days of age, compared with uninoculated controls. Examination of the jejunal mucosa by scanning and transmission electron microscopy showed the presence of long-segmented filamentous organisms in poults that had been inoculated with SS material. These organisms were not seen in uninoculated poults. Further research is needed to characterize these structures and to determine their involvement, if any, in the adverse effects associated with the SS.
