Mycobacterium Paratuberculosis in Animals.

Paratuberculosis in animals has been the subject of an enormous amount of study by the veterinary world. To see the extent of this research, access the MEDLINE database (available free from MedScape) and search on the keywords "animal and paratuberculosis". In many animals, M. paratuberculosis causes a chronic granulomatous enteritis, which is extremely similar to Crohn's Disease in its pathology. Below, I have listed a selection of studies which describe paratuberculosis in various animals.

A far more comprehensive list of the animals which can be infected by Mycobacterium paratuberculosis is available in the paper Ruminant Paratuberculosis (Johne's disease):- The current status and future prospects
