Title : Epizootiology of pulmonary mycoplasmosis of domestic ruminants in Benin.
Authors : R. ADEHAN et I. YOUSSAO ABDOU KARIM.
Summary : Epizootiology of pulmonary mycoplasmosis was carried out on suspicious lung fragments found at Cotonou-Porto-Novo slaughterhouses. The data were obtained from 720 ruminants including 320 cattle, 224 goats and 176 sheep. The etiological diagnosis allowed isolation of several species of mycoplasma : Mycoplasma mycoides, Mycoplasma ovipneumoniae, Mycoplasma capricolum, F38, Mycoplasma arginini, Mycoplasma alvis and Mycoplasma bovirhinis. These results suggest that the prevalence of mycoplasma varies according to the species of Mycoplasma, and the type of ruminant. Associations between several species of mycoplasma were frequent. On the same lung sample, associations between mycoplasma and bacteria were also frequently observed.
Keywords : epizootiology - mycoplasma - cattle - goats - sheep - Benin.
