Nontuberculous Mycobacteria Prevalence in Bats’ Guano from Caves and Attics of Buildings Studied by Culture and qPCR Examinations
TLDR
The correlation of detection of mycobacteria between Ziehl–Neelsen microscopy and culture examination and qPCR was strong and differences were observed for the electrical conductivity, total carbon, total organic, and total inorganic carbon when comparing bat guano collected from caves and attics.

BURULI (MYCOBACTERIAL) ULCERATION IN UGANDA. (A NEW FOCUS OF BURULI ULCER IN MADI DISTRICT, UGANDA): REPORT OF A FIELD STUDY.
TLDR
This investigation supports the view that there is an association between the river Nile and Buruli ulcer patients and it may be that the Nile plays an indirect role by moderating climatic and dermal temperatures within limits favourable to the organism.
Site of Multiplication of Human Leprosy Bacilli inoculated into the Foot-pads of Mice
TLDR
Quantitative analyses have shown that the multiplication of Mycobacterium leprae is limited, is dependent on the size of the inoculum and is confined to the foot-pad, and can be passaged apparently indefinitely, their bacteriological characteristics remaining unchanged.
