MetadataShow full item record
Mycoplasma is a highly contagious pathogen, which can cause mastitis, pneumonia, arthritis, among other diseases. Its isolation requires specific means and conditions due to its fastidious growth. Due to the complexity of its diagnosis, it is believed that the real prevalence of mastitis cases by Mycoplasma is underestimated. The objective of the present study was to identify the prevalence of Mycoplasma bovis in different dairy herds in the state of São Paulo. The study was divided into a screening phase in which samples were collected from 67 expansion tanks and individual collection, in which positive properties for M. bovis were visited and collected milk samples from all animals with clinical and subclinical mastitis. The laboratory diagnosis was made through PCR and specific microbiological culture. The prevalence of M. bovis found in the screening phase was 1.4%. In the individual phase, all milk samples from M. bovis positive property in the expansion tank were negative, which allows to conclude the low prevalence of the agent under the conditions of the present study.
