ABSTRACT


A carcass of an emaciated female dromedary imported from Pakistan to the United Arab Emirates was sent for necropsy. The main pathological alterations were liver amyloidosis and thickening of the stomachal wall (compartment
3). Two pairs of schistosomes were discovered in the mesenteric veins of the small and large intestines. Morphological features matched those of Schistosoma indicum.
Key words: Camelus dromedarius, dromedary, Pakistan, Schistosoma indicum, United Arab Emirates
