A 2 year old male Jamunapari goat weighing 30 kilograms was presented with complaints of chronic diarrhea, progressive weight loss and poor response to therapy. Faecal sample was collected aseptically and subjected for the presence of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) by Ziehl-Neelsen staining and polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Ziehl – Neelsen staining (ZN) revealed the presence of clumped acid fast bacilli in the faecal smears. For further differencing between Acid fast bacilli from nonacid fast MAP confirmation, DNA was extracted from faecal sample and subjected to PCR by using specific primers targeting IS 900 gene sequence of MAP and confirmed JD by detection of 413 bp PCR product.

Keywords: Johne’s diseaes, Goat, IS 900 PCR.
