Brucella abortus was isolated and identified from aborted lambs in the Governorate of Sulaimani /Said-Sadic district. The blood agar, candle jar and 37°C incubator were successfully used. Microbiological and biochemical tests were used for identification of the isolates. Although previous incidence of brucellosis prevalence has been reported serologically in the area but the present study could represent the first attempt for B. abortus isolation, with local available facilities in the Governorate of Sulaimani.
