We examined 1,022 free-living roe deer, red deer, and fallow deer for mycobacteria in Germany, 2002–2006. Retropharyngeal lymph nodes and other tissues were processed for culture and isolates were identified with the use of polymerase chain reaction and DNA sequencing. Mycobacteria were found in 18.3% of deer, with Mycobacterium avium in 14.8%. Other atypical mycobacteria were detected in 5.3%. Members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex were not detected.
