trends of mycobacterium bovis isolation and first-line anti-tuberculosis drug susceptibility profile: a fifteen-year laboratory-based surveillance.mycobacterium tuberculosis causes the majority of tuberculosis (tb) cases in humans; however, in developing countries, human tb caused by m. bovis may be frequent but undetected. human tb caused by m. bovis is considered a zoonosis; transmission is mainly through consumption of unpasteurized dairy products, and it is less frequently attributed to animal-to-human or human-to-human contact. we describe the trends of m. bovis isolation from human samples and first-line drug susceptibility during a ...201526421930

frequency of mycobacterium bovis as an etiologic agent in extrapulmonary tuberculosis in hiv-positive and -negative mexican patients.mycobacterium bovis can be an important etiological agent for extrapulmonary (ep) manifestations of tuberculosis, especially in hiv-infected persons. from january 2000 to december 2003, m. bovis as a cause of ep tuberculosis was investigated at the pneumonology service, hospital general de mexico, mexico city. eighty hiv-positive (hiv+) patients and 83 hiv-negative (hiv-) with ep involvement (ganglionar, genitourinary, meningeal, cutaneous, peritoneal, and pericardial) were analyzed using clinic ...200918982366
bacille calmette-guérin infection and disease with fatal outcome associated with a point mutation in the interleukin-12/interleukin-23 receptor beta-1 chain in two mexican families.patients with mendelian susceptibility to mycobacterial diseases (msmd) mainly suffer from mycobacterium and salmonella infections, which are due to mutations in genes controlling the interleukin (il)-12/il-23-dependent ifn-γ production. we performed a molecular diagnosis in two mexican patients with persistent mycobacterial infections. patients 1 (p1) and 2 (p2) from two unrelated, non-consanguineous families from two villages near mexico city developed bacille calmette-guérin (bcg) disease sec ...201020171917
