Mohammad Arif Awan

Abstract


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.
