ISOLATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF MYCOPLASMAS FROM PNEUMONIC LUNGS OF GOATS
Fifty pathological samples (lungs) from pleuropneumonia suspected goats were collected from Quetta abattoir and cultured for Mycoplasma. Subsequent bacteriological investigations revealed 6 isolates. Of these, Mycoplasma mycoides subspecies Capri (3), Acholepasma species (2) and untypable Mycopasma (1) were identified on the basis of morphological, culture and biochemical characteristics. Only 3/6 isolates were sero typed as Mycoplasma mycoides subspecies Capri.
