Abstract

In this study; 105 aborted bovine fetuses were examined for Campylobacteriosis and pathologic findings were compared with microbiologic, immunohistochemical and real time polimerase chain reaction (Real Time-PCR) methods. Although, Campylobacter spp. was microbiologically detected in only 4 cases, this was detected in 5 cases by immunohistochemical method and by Real Time-PCR in 7 cases. It is concluded that 6.6% (7/105) of abortion cases were caused by Campylobacteriosis and Real Time PCR more sensitive and usefull for the the diagnosis of the disease and immunohistochemical method is as sensitive as microbiologic methods for diagnosis in unsufficient labarotories.
