Abstract

In the present study, pulmonary lesions were observed in 188 (16.07%) out of 1170 buffaloes screened at slaughter houses. Among these lesions, hydatidosis was encountered in 66 (5.64%) buffaloes followed by pneumonia 57 (4.87%), pulmonary hemorrhages 28 (2.39%), pulmonary emphysema 20 (1.71%), pulmonary edema, 14 (1.20%) and pulmonary anthracosis 3 (0.26%) in buffaloes. Hydatidosis was the principle factor causing the damage to the lung parenchyma and important cyclozoonosis conditions.
