Abstract

The present study was undertaken to elucidate the pathological conditions associated with blood vessels of camel in North-Western, Rajasthan. Majority of the camels included in this study had died of natural causes and 12-15 year old. Blood vessels samples (n=43) showing gross lesions were collected and processed for histopathological examination. The pathological conditions of arteries comprised arteritis (2.32%), onchocerciasis (16.27%), arterial hypertrophy (4.65%), atherosclerosis (6.97%), calcified aorta (18.60%), hemorrhages (13.95%) and congestion (30.23%). However, phlebitis was also reported in 6.97 % cases.
