Abstract:

One hundred cattle-calves irrespective of their age, sex and breed brought to Teaching Veterinary Clinical Complex, College of Veterinary and Animal Science, Bikaner were screened for Theileria annulata infection. Blood and lymph node aspirate smears were prepared from the ear vein and enlarged superficial lymph nodes of suspected cattle-calves and stained with Giemsa’s stain for detection of piroplams and schizonts under oil immersion, respectively. Blood smear examination revealed presence of piroplasms in seven cases. There was anisocytosis and poikilocytosis observed in erythrocytes structure and infected erythrocytes were appeared as echinocytes. Lymph node aspirate smears examination revealed presence of schizonts in lymphocytes only in three cases and presence of releasing merozoites from the infected cell only in one out of three cases. Thus, the hospital prevalence of Theileria annulata infection in cattle-calves in Bikaner was 7% and 3% by Giemsa stained blood smear and lymph node aspirate smear examination, respectively.
