Abstract:
Lumpy skin disease (LSD) is a viral disease caused by lumpy skin disease virus (LSDV), a member of Capri poxvirus genus of Poxviridae family. It is a transboundary disease of the economic importance affecting cattle and water buffaloes. The disease is transmitted by arthropod vectors and causes high morbidity and low mortality. LSD has recently been reported first time in India with 7.1% morbidity among cattle. Generally, fever, anorexia, and characteristic nodules on the skin mucous membrane of mouth, nostrils, udder, genital, rectum, drop in milk production, abortion, infertility and sometimes death are the clinical manifestations of the disease. The disease is endemic in African and has started spreading to India and other Asian countries. In India, currently epidemiological status of the disease is unknown. Vaccination along with strict quarantine measures and vector control could be effective for preventing the spread of the disease. This article aims to summarise the latest developments in the transmission, clinical presentations, diagnostics and management of the disease.
