DETECTION OF SARCOCYSTIS IN RUMINANTS BY HISTOPATHOLOGY

The parasites of genus Sarcocystis are among the most commonly found parasites in domestic ruminants and some species of Sarcocystis can bring significant economic loss when causing clinical and subclinical disease. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of Sarcocystis histologically in samples received by the Veterinary Research Institute (VRI). A total of 250 Disease Investigation cases of ruminants (142 cattle, 96 goat, 6 sheep and 3 buffaloes respectively) were received in 2012. The prevalence of Sarcocystis unspecified species cysts  were detected in 33.8% cases of cattle, 24.0% in goat, 22.2% in sheep and no positive case in buffaloes. All of the positive cases were from the heart muscle.
