  • Abstract: Mycobacterium orygis, a newly identified member of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex, has been isolated predominantly from hoofstock in eastern Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, and sporadically in cattle (Bos taurus indicus), rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta), humans, and a greater one-horned rhinoceros (Rhinoceros unicornis) in South Asia. In rhinoceros, tuberculosis typically presents as a chronic progressive respiratory disease. The report describes the postmortem diagnosis of… CONTINUE READING
