Abstract: This study was conducted to serotype isolates of Mannheimia haemolytica in the Aydın region of Turkey. A total of 200 lung samples showing pneumonia signs were obtained from slaughterhouses in the Aydın region. Twenty-four strains were isolated as Mannheimia haemolytica complex. Twenty-two strains were identified as Mannheimia haemolytica and 2 were as Pasteurella trehalosi for the first time in the region. The serotyping studies of strains isolated from pneumonic lung samples showed that Mannheimia haemolytica serotypes A1, A2, A6, A7, A8 and Pasteurella trehalosi serotype T4 were present in Aydın.
