Abstract:

The present study reports a case of co-infection with Eimeria ninakohlyakimovae and Trichuris ovis in goat kid. Clinical history demonstrated severe illness withanorexia, increased lethargy and greenish yellow diarrhoea. Necropsy examination demonstrated thickened and congested intestinal mucosa. Non-pedunculated whitish nodules were seen on the mucosa of jejunum and ileum. Trichurisovis worms were embedded in the caecal mucosa by their anterior end. The intestinal contents revealed numerous coccidian oocystsof Eimeria ninakohlyakimovae. Eosinophilic nuclei with centrally placed nucleus in macrogamonts and basophilic nuclei in microgamonts were arranged in periphery with infiltration of lymphocytes and few plasma cells in intestine. Characteristic lesions observed were hyperplasia of intestinal epithelium and villus blunting.
