Infectious disease agents capable of inducing clinical illness are quite common in veterinary medicine and their prompt diagnosis is often life-saving for animals. Knowledge of the pathological mechanisms developed by is critical for correct diagnosis and possible therapy. Additionally, animals can sometimes carry harmful germs that can spread to humans and cause zoonotic diseases. We have been taught by the recent SARS-COV2 pandemic of the importance of working with a One-Health prospective; in this scenario, the prompt and correct diagnosis of infectious diseases represents a significant challenge.

Diagnosticians use two primary methods to detect infectious diseases: confirming the presence of the microorganism (through cytology, bacteriological culture, fecal examination techniques, microarrays, antigen assays, immunohistochemical stains, nucleic acid amplification techniques), or detecting antibodies against the organism. Despite the availability of these various techniques, no single test is considered the definitive gold standard. The main goal of this Research Topic, therefore, is to promote new advances in all aspects concerning diagnostics in bacteriology, mycology, virology and veterinary fields.

Manuscripts covering, but not limited to, the following themes are welcomed:
• Diagnostic sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value and negative predictive value of diagnostic tests;
• Comparison between techniques for the diagnosis of infectious diseases;
• Novel techniques for the study of microorganisms and their pathogenicity;
• Application of diagnostic tests in veterinary epidemiological studies;
• Original Research papers are encouraged. Review articles are also welcomed.


Keywords: Veterinary Microbiology, Veterinary Infectious Diseases, Diagnostic tests, Diagnostics
