Abstract:  A disseminated Mycobacterium avium subsp. avium infection was diagnosed in a pet Korean squirrel.   Grossly, multiple small nodules in the lung, liver, spleen, and skin were observed.  Adrenal glands were very enlarged.   The only tissue exhibiting necrosis and calcification was a very enlarged bronchial lymph node.  The remaining lymph nodes were slightly enlarged. Moderate ascites was also observed.  Microscopically, a disseminated granulomatous inflammation with numerous lymphocytes was seen.  Acid-fast bacilli were detected in macrophages, in giant cells, free in the interstitium, and in some lymphatic vessels, both within cells and free in the lumen.  M. avium subsp. avium was isolated and identified by polymerase chain reaction-restriction endonuclease analysis.

NAL Call Number  SF901.V47
Abstract:  Cutaneous 'sterile' pyogranuloma/granuloma syndrome (SPGS) is an uncommon canine skin disorder of unknown aetiopathogenesis.  Histopathological findings and failure to demonstrate an aetiologic agent are suggestive of this syndrome.  Nevertheless, it has been hypothesized that SPGS may be related to an immune response against persistent endogenous or exogenous antigens.  The presence of Leishmania and Mycobacterium organisms was investigated by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) techniques in 46 canine skin samples histopathologically diagnosed as SPGS.  Concomitantly, an immunohistochemical technique for Leishmania detection was applied on the same samples and the results were compared with those from PCR.  The PCR technique yielded positive results for Leishmania spp. in 21 out of 46 skin samples.  The results of immunohistochemical techniques were identical to those obtained by PCR.  The PCR technique gave negative results for Mycobacterium spp. in all the samples examined.  These results suggest the importance of looking for Leishmania spp. in skin biopsies with histopathological findings consistent with the diagnosis of SPGS.

Abstract:  Twenty-nine cases presumptively diagnosed as feline cutaneous mycobacteriosis were evaluated microscopically with haematoxylin and eosin and modified Fite's stained sections using archived formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue specimens. Lesions were characterized histologically as feline leprosy (7 cases lepromatous and 16 cases tuberculoid) or atypical mycobacteriosis (3 cases); three cases did not fit these criteria and were classified as 'miscellaneous'.  Actinomycetales-specific polymerase chain reaction (PCR) of variable regions 1, 2 and 3 of the 16S ribosomal RNA (rRNA) gene and subsequent sequence analysis of the amplicons were performed to identify the species of mycobacteria associated with each case.  Together, this study identified 10 different Actinomycetales organisms with greater than 98% nucleotide sequence identity to named species, nine were of the genus Mycobacterium and eight were associated with feline leprosy (both lepromatous and tuberculoid).  Based on this study, we conclude that feline cutaneous mycobacteriosis should be considered as a syndrome with varied clinical and histological presentations associated with a variety of different Mycobacterium species, organisms other than Mycobacterium sp. may be associated with feline cutaneous mycobacteriosis lesions, and molecular diagnostic techniques can be an important tool for identifying agents associated with lesions of feline cutaneous mycobacteriosis.

Abstract:  Cases of disseminated Mycobacterium avium infections in dogs are rare because it appears that the species is innately resistant to infection.  A 2-year-old, castrated, 5 kg Shih Tzu-Poodle-cross developed anemia, abdominal pain, lethargy, and splenomegaly.  Histological examination of surgically removed spleen indicated marked granulomatous splenitis with myriad intracytoplasmic acid-fast bacterial rods.  Ultrastructural examination revealed the presence of 3-4-micrometer-long mycobacteria in phagolysosomes of epithelioid macrophages.  Tissue extract of lightly fixed spleen was positive for M. avium 16S ribosomal RNA and negative for M. tuberculosis complex IS6110 DNA by polymerase chain reaction testing.  Anemia was associated with the presence of mycobacteria-infected macrophages in bone marrow.  The animal's condition deteriorated, and euthanasia was performed after a clinical course of 2 months.  The principal morphological findings at necropsy were severe diffuse granulomatous hepatitis, enteric lymphadenomegaly, and segmental granulomatous enteritis with intralesional mycobacteria present.  Mycobacterium avium was cultured from enteric lymph nodes sampled at necropsy.  The source of infection was not established but was presumed to be environmental with an enteric portal of entry.
