Fifty eight cases (52 males and 6 females) of saddle gall were recorded out of 121 camels examined. Saddle galls are more frequently encountered in working camels (47.93%). History revealed painful sinus opening of various sizes with thick purulent discharge at wither region. Most of these wounds were deep in antero-posterior direction underneath thick muscles. The overall incidence was found to be highest in males (42.97%) followed by rainy season (22.31%) and in 6-9 years age group of camels. These cases needed debridement of unhealthy tissue, drainage of pus, proper irrigation, topical application of antiseptic, broad spectrum antibiotics, NSAID and complete rest up to recovery. Wounds were protected by appropriately wide bandage.
