Abstract: A one-year-old Buffalo male calf carcass was brought to the Department of Veterinary Pathology, CVAS, Navania, Udaipur for postmortem examination, died with a history of anorexia, emaciation, and chronic illness. External examination of carcass revealed severe debilitation, pale mucous membranes and absence of rigor mortis. Gross examination of the organs of buffalo calf carcass revealed severe congestion in viscera, smaller and nodular liver with an enlarged distended gallbladder filled with watery consistency fluid, smaller size spleen with wrinkled capsule and gelatinization of fat was observed in fat depots and visceral organ. Microscopic examination of the liver revealed heavy infiltration of chronic inflammatory cells such as lymphocytes and macrophages, as well as an increase in fibrous tissue proliferation within and around the hepatic lobules. Pseudolobulation and in some areas eccentric position of central vein were also noted. Additionally, kidney showed degeneration of tubular epithelium, hyaline cast formation in tubules and chronic infiltration of cells and sarcocyst were observed in the myocardium of the heart, while the lungs exhibited interstitial pneumonia with congestion.
