Abstract:

Outbreak of bovine tuberculosis is rare reported in Albania. In this study we confirmed the bTb diagnosis by using gross pathology examination, microscopic examination of affected tissues, and Mycobacterium bovis isolation and identification by culturing, colony morphology and Ziehl–Neelsen stain. Typical mycobacteria were grown in both solid and liquid media, however in liquid media M.bovis was grown faster than solid media. In addition, isolates were typed by using spoligotyping method and M.bovis was confirmed.
