The study was conducted to investigate the etiology of the bacterium Esherishia coli by culturing, antimicrobial susceptibility test and diagnosing the bacteria that exist in synovial secretion in an infected broiler arthritis. A total of 35 ankle joint discharge were collected from broiler 18-22 days ages suffering from arthritis isolated from broiler chicken at Kerbala governorate, Iraq, through period of four months beginning from December 2014 till the end March 2015, in an attempt to detect the bacterium Esherishia coli. The results showed that out of thirty-five ankle joint samples, there were fourteen bacterium isolates as Esherishia coli. In conclusion, the incidence of some arthritis in broiler chicken contain Esherishia coli that may play important risk in arthritis, Simultaneously, as in the case of the use of antibiotics, Ciprofloxacin has been considered as an effective treatment for Esherishia coli in vitro susceptibility, but no resistant 100% for Amoxcycyline against all Esherishia coli isolates.
