Abstract :

In arid and semi-arid regions of the world, camels are an essential multipurpose animal. The ship of the desert is being used for transportation, meat production, wool, and hides production while milk is also a very valuable product concerning nutritious and economical importance. The single-humped camel (Camelus dromedarius) also known as the Arabian camel is the most common camel found in Pakistan. Trypanosomiasis, perhaps the most dangerous protozoan illness affecting camels, is caused by Trypanosoma evansi, also known as "Surra", which causes a lot of economic losses as direct or indirect losses. The objective of this mini review of the literature is to identify the comparative prevalence of Trypanosomiasis (Surra) in Punjab, Sindh, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK), and Balochistan.
