Bovine tuberculosis: a retrospective study at Jos abattoir, Plateau State, Nigeria.

Abstract Nigeria has the thirteenth highest burden of human tuberculosis. The current increasing incidence of tuberculosis in humans, particularly in immune-compromised persons, has given interest in the zoonotic importance of Mycobacterium bovis in developing countries like Nigeria. This study determined the prevalence of bovine tuberculosis as a background information for effective control measures in Plateau State in cattle population.

AB  - INTRODUCTION: Nigeria has the thirteenth highest burden of human tuberculosis.
      The current increasing incidence of tuberculosis in humans, particularly in
      immune-compromised persons, has given interest in the zoonotic importance of
      Mycobacterium bovis in developing countries like Nigeria. This study determined
      the prevalence of bovine tuberculosis as a background information for effective
      control measures in Plateau State in cattle population. METHODS: We reviewed
      surveillance records on cattle slaughtered and suggestive tuberculosis lesions
      from cattle slaughtered annually from 2007-2012 in Jos abattoir, Plateau State.
      Bovine tuberculosis cases at post mortem were based on examination of
      characteristics TB lesion on organs by Veterinary officers. We performed
      descriptive analysis using Epi info version 3.5.3 and Microsoft Excel 2007.
      RESULTS: A total of 52, 262 cattle were slaughtered from 2007-2012, out of which 
      4, 658 (11.2%) had evidence of tuberculosis lesion at post mortem. The average
      yearly prevalence was 9.1% but varied from a high of 16.3% in 2007 to a low of
      3.1% in 2012. Trend analysis showed that bovine tuberculosis had a seasonal
      variation and peaked mostly in July and August. The number of suggestive Tb
      lesion cases was highest in the month of August and lowest in the month of
      January, 2007-2012. CONCLUSION: This study shows that bovine tuberculosis is
      endemic in Plateau State. Trend analysis showed that bovine tuberculosis is
      seasonal and peaked mostly in July and August. Continuous surveillance through
      meat inspection is required to prevent zoonotic transmission of bovine
      tuberculosis.
