1/2. mycobacterium bovis infection, United Kingdom.

    We describe the first documented spillover of bovine tuberculosis from animals into the human population of the United Kingdom since the resurgence of the disease in cattle in the country. This finding suggests that there may be a small risk for transmission to humans, making continued vigilance particularly necessary.

2/2. mycobacterium bovis tuberculosis: from animal to man and back.

    Rare cases of tuberculosis due to mycobacterium bovis have been described in humans who have been exposed to cattle or other infected animals. We report a case of tuberculosis in cattle exposed to a patient infected with M. bovis, where the strain isolated in the cattle and the patient were identical. As the patient is reported to have been exposed and contaminated during childhood, this seems to be the first documented case of transmission of M. bovis from animal to man and back to animal.
