Theileriosis is one of the major tick borne diseases endemic in India. A four year cross-bred dairy cow with history of anorexia, bilateral watery nasal discharge, pyrexia, cutaneous nodules was reported to Veterinary Clinical Complex, Veterinary College and Research Institute, Namakkal for treatment. On clinical examination the animal had pyrexia, bilateral adenopathy of prescapular lymph node, generalised cutaneous nodules, salivation and pale mucous membrane. Confirmatory diagnosis of theilerioisis was done by detection of piroplasms and schizonts (Koch’s blue bodies) in Giemsa stained blood and lymphnode aspirate smears respectively. Haemogram of the animal revealed severe anaemia. Treatment of animal with combination of buparvoquone and oxytetracycline with supportive treatment resulted in clinical recovery with resolvement of cutaneous nodules.
