Resumen

Three wild red-legged partridges (Alectoris rufa) from intensively managed hunting areas in Spain were received for necropsy. They showed granulomatous lesions in different parts of the body, mainly in liver and spleen. Microscope examination of the granulomas showed central caseous necrosis and large amounts of acid-fast bacilli, surrounded by epitheloid cells, giant cells, and lymphocytes. Attempts to isolate and culture the bacillus in Colestsos medium were unsuccessful, but the polymerase chain reaction technique revealed the presence of microorganisms belonging to the Mycobacterium avium complex in one of the partridges. This is the first report of avian tuberculosis in free-living red-legged partridges.
