Abstract

Tuberculosis was found in a wild, mature male Australian fur seal (Arctocephalus pusillus doriferus) at Hobart, Tasmania on 8 March 1992. We observed fibrogranulomatous and pyogranulomatous lesions in the lung, pleura, lymph nodes and spleen. The SDS/PAGE profile of this Tasmanian isolate was similar to other seal strains; however, differences were detected using pTBN12 and insertion sequence IS6110 probes.
