Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) and Ranavirus (Rv) are among the pathogens responsible for the rapid decline of amphibian populations worldwide. The aim of this study is to determine the presence of both pathogens in the endemic Beyşehir frog population living in the Lakes Region in the southwestern Anatolia between 2014-2015 years.  Prevalences of each pathogen and co-infections (i.e., presence infection with both of Bd and Rv in same animal) were 48.6 %, 10.3 % and 7.0 % respectively and differences in prevalences were detected among lakes and years. This study  is the first report of Rv infection and co-infection with Bd and Rv of endemic Beyşehir frog (Pelophylax caralitanus) in Turkey. Although there are infection by both pathogens, it is unclear that how effective in declining of P.caralitanus population.  

Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) ve Ranavirus (Rv), dünya çapında amfibi populasyonlarının hızla azalmasından sorumlu patojenler arasındadır. Bu çalışmanın amacı, 2012-2013 yılları arasında Güneybatı Anadolu Bölgesi'ndeki Göller Bölgesi'nde yaşayan endemik Beyşehir kurbağa populasyonunda her iki patojenin varlığını saptamaktır. Her bir patojen ve koenfeksiyon varlığı sırasıyla %48,6, % 10,3 ve % 7,0 oranında tespit edildi ve göllerin ve yıllar arasında yaygınlık oranlarında farklılıkları tespit edilmiştir. Bu çalışma, Türkiye'de endemik Beyşehir kurbağası (Pelophylax caralitanus)’nda Bd ve Rv'si ile Rv enfeksiyonu ve ko-enfeksiyonunun ilk rapordur. Her iki patojen tarafından da enfeksiyon olmasına rağmen, P.caralitanus populasyonunun azalmasında ne kadar etkili olduğu tespit edilmemiştir.
