A 2 year old male Miniature Schnauzer from an urban household was presented to the Animal Hospital of Budapest with generalized lymphadenopathy. Cytology of an enlarged popliteal lymph node revealed the presence of acid-fast, rodshaped bacteria in macrophages and neutrophils. Histopathological and bacteriological examination of a lymph node biopsy sample and subsequent post mortem examination confirmed the diagnosis of systemic mycobacteriosis. Bacterial culture of post mortem obtained lymph node and tissue samples yielded pure growth of Mycobacterium avium subsp. hominissuis, identified by molecular biological methods.
