ABSTRACT
A camel presented with history of fever, inappetence and development of scab on many part of body along with blindness since more than one week. History revealed suffering of many camels with similar symptom in that area. Clinical examination showed the different stages of pox lesion in the mouth, face, neck, abdominal, thigh region along with lacrimation, corneal opacity in both eyes and enlargement of mandibular lymph nodes. Camel was treated by antibiotic, anti–inflammatory and topical therapy. Animal was successfully managed but without any improvement in the blindness. It was concluded awareness of camel owners about separation of diseased and healthy young camels, improved health care including long acting antibiotics, improved hygiene and general supportive treatment will decrease the harmful effects of camel pox.
