ABSTRACT
No presente trabalho foram analisadas bacteriologicamente 103 amostras de suínos, provenientes da região de Uberlândia (MG), sendo 12 de tecidos com abcessos, 20 de linfonodos sem lesões e 71 de linfonodos com lesões tuberculóides. O exame bacteriológico das 103 amostras permitiu o isolamento de 12 cepas de micobactérias, sendo todas oriundas dos 71 linfonodos com lesões (12/71). As 12 cepas de micobactérias foram identificadas como pertencentes ao complexo M. avium-intracellulare (MAI). PALAVRAS-CHAVE: Mycobacterium; suíno; porco; abate; tuberculose. In this present study 103 samples of pigs from the Uberlândia area were submitted to bacteriological analyses. Tissues with abscess were present in 12 samples; lymphonodes without lesions in 20 samples and 71 of them were lymphonodes with lesions “tuberculosis-like infection”. The bacteriological analyses of the 103 samples have permitted the isolation of 12 mycobacterias strains, all of them from the 71 lymphonodes with lesions. The mycobacterias strains were identified as belonging to Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare Complex (MAI). KEY-WORDS: Swine; pig; slaughter; tuberculosis.
