The aim of this review is to improve our knowledge on the bacteriological profile of <em>Campylobacter</em> isolated from pigs. Porks, beef also represent sources of infection with these microorganisms. <em>Campylobacter</em> is a bacterium comprising seventeen species, including <em>Campylobacter jejuni</em>, <em>Campylobacter coli</em> and <em>Campylobacter fetus</em>. <em>C</em>. <em>coli</em> is the most common <em>Campylobacter</em> species recovered from pigs. The prevalence (46%, 52%, 75%) varies from one country to another, from the collection site.&nbsp; <em>C</em>. <em>jejuni</em> and <em>C</em>. <em>coli</em>&nbsp; grows best in a low oxygen or microaerophilic environment. The virulence markers varies among different sources of the isolates. The majority of genes were found at high levels in <em>Campylobacter</em> spp. isolated from pork meat (<em>csr</em>A, <em>sod</em>B, <em>cdt</em>B, and <em>rac</em>R). Moreover, this review revealed virulent properties of <em>Campylobacter</em> isolated from swine products and high resistance rates to Tetracycline (68%), Erythromycin (61%), which may represent difficulties in campylobacteriosis treatment. Fluoroquinolones resistance (2.2%, 7%, 11%,100%) varies according to the country and the source of the sample. It will be wise to insist on hygenic measures as a solution to limit the incidence of <em>Campylobacter</em> and prevent dissemination of pathogens in animals (chicken, pork and beef) within slaughter-houses/ killings Cameroon.</p> 2020-12-31T00:00:00+00:00 ##submission.copyrightStatement##
