RAMOS, Gabriela Bim et al. Intercurrence between enzootic leukosis and tuberculosis in slaughtered bovine in slaughterhouses. Arq. Inst. Biol. [online]. 2016, vol.83, e0152014.  Epub Sep 15, 2016. ISSN 1808-1657.

Leukosis and tuberculosis are diseases that affect cattle and entail considerable economic losses, due to theim pact on productivity, but there are few reports that they occur simultaneously. Therefore, aimed to evaluate the complications of these diseases in cattles laughtered in São Gotardo, MG, these animals were positive to the tuberculin and showed lesions characteristic of the disease during the stamping. One hundred and thirty three samples of blood serum, all from positive to bovine tuberculosis, were analyzed by immuno diffusion technique in agar gel (AGID), and the prevalence of cattle that were positive by AGID test was 55.64% (74/133). The results of this research showed that tuberculos is and leukosis are diseases present in the studied regions and are disseminated in this population, with significant levels, causing risk to the health of animals and people, as the zoonotic bovine tuberculosis.
