  1. a Source farms.
  2. b SGI (Severity of Granulomatous Inflammation) grading: based on total number of epithelioid macrophages and leukocyte distribution patterns of the terminal ileum [46].
  3. c AFB (Acid Fast Bacteria)—grading: grades 0–2 were defined as paucibacillary; grades 3–4 were defined as multibacillary observed in terminal ileum tissue.
  4. d IS900 PCR result using each of the two primer sets.
  5. e Diagnosis: based on histopathological observations.
