ABSTRACT


This study was designed to evaluate and correlate CSF chemical analysis specially Vitamin B1, B2, B6 and B12 in the diagnosis of neurological manifestations in 13 camels (aging 2-19 years). The studied vitamins in affected animals were compared to healthy. Additionally, the current results of vitamin concentrations of Vitamins B1, B2,B6 and B12 in cerebrospinal fluid and serum samples were determined using HPLC assay. The results revealed that the concentration of those vitamins in the CSF was significantly less than in serum.
