Abstract: Caprine paratuberculosis (Johne's disease) was diagnosed according to pathomorphological findings in a 5-year-old indigenous female hairy goat in ElazİÛ. Diagnosis was confirmed by demonstration of Mycobacterium avium subspecies paratuberculosis (M.a. paratuberculosis) in the intestinal smears and tissue sections stained with the Ziehl-Neelsen (ZN) method, and also detection of specific M.a. paratuberculosis DNA by the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR).
Keywords: Pathomorphological Findings, Paratuberculosis, Goat, Elazığ.
