Onchocerca spp. (camel)



Untitled document

Onchocerca spp.

In the Sudan, onchocercosis in camel was investigated and  three species were reported so far:

O. fasciata,  O.gutturosa (bovine species) and O.armilata.

A prevalance of 56% of O. gutturosa in camel’s ligamentum nuchae was recorded. O. armillata was reported from Dinder area only, while O. gutturosa is widespread in the Sudan.

The pastural co-existence of camel and cattle might have facilitated such cross transmission between different animal species.
