Three months before presentation of this penguin, a large percentage of the yellow-eyed penguin chicks from the region where this bird was found had been affected by a severe bacterial stomatitis caused by Corynebacterium amycolatum. (6) The infection, which resulted in high mortality, produced a severe diphtheritic stomatitis and upper respiratory tract infection, with occasional involvement of the lungs and inner ear.
