[infection with mycoplasma mycoides ssp. mycoides lc (large colony type) in bezoar goat kids (capra aegagrus cretica) in the bern (switzerland) zoo].mycoplasma mycoides ssp. mycoides lc (large colony type) (mml) was isolated from three 2 to 6 weeks old wild goat kids (capra aegagrus cretica) dead of septicemia in a swiss zoo. necropsy revealed peritonitis, pneumonia and enteritis. mml was isolated out of the ear canal of most of the healthy animals in the flock. the high density of the animals, the presence of concomitant diseases and the carriage among healthy animals seem to have been important predisposing factors for the mml-infection.19948091181
