Anatomical and clinical study of a case of mixed Fasciola gigantica and Schistosoma bovis infection in a Peuhl zebu in Senegal



Anatomical and clinical study of a case of mixed Fasciola gigantica and Schistosoma bovis infection in a Peuhl zebu in Senegal



Revue de Medecine Veterinaire 144(10): 759-765



A 2.5-year-old zebu from a village on Lake Guiers, Senegal, in poor general condition, suffering from diarrhoea, severe weight loss, anaemia and dehydration was examined before and after death. The findings are described in detail. S. bovis was present in the mesenteric veins and F. gigantica was observed in the bile ducts; Clostridium ramosum was also present in the liver. Adult paramphistomes, found in the rumen of the animal, are generally considered as non-pathogenic.
