Mycobacterium microti Infection in Dairy Goats, France


Mycobacterium microti is a member of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTBC). This complex also includes M. tuberculosis, which causes human tuberculosis, and M. bovis and M. caprae, which cause bovine tuberculosis. M. microti was initially described as a pathogen of small rodents and also frequently affects domestic animals, especially cats, and has also been described in wildlife, especially wild boars and badgers (1). This mycobacterium has also been involved in human pulmonary tuberculosis cases, which highlights its potential zoonotic risk (2). We report a case of M. microti infection in a dairy goat herd, which underlines the risk for confounding bovine tuberculosis diagnosis and potential consequences for livestock management.
