After systematic examination of the thoracic, abdominal cavities and exposed organs, the size of the prescapular
and mesenteric lymph nodes of each rodent was noted.
Clinical examination revealed fever (104 (0)-105 (0)F), increased respiratory rate, dehydration (mean STT<4sec), pale mucous membranes with marked anemia and enlargement of popliteal lymph nodes in six dogs and both popliteal and prescapular
lymphnodes in two dogs.

and pulmonary lymph nodes, brain, thymus (if available), tonsils, and skeletal muscle.
Theileria-induced rapid multiplication of leucocytes is apparent clinically in the form of swollen lymph nodes and are easily palpable particularly at prescapular
left lymph node and axillary right lymph node were never found clinically affected.
Seven different regional lymph nodes (Retropharyngeal, Mesenteric, Supramammary, Bronchial, Portal, Prescapular
and Internal iliac) were selected for the investigation during the period of October, 2010 to September, 2010.
Lymphadenopathy of popliteal, prescapular
, submandibular and inguinal lymph nodes was also found.
, axillary, and popliteal lymph nodes.
Method: A total of 768 specimens (heparinized or EDTA containing blood (162), fine needle aspirates from prescapular
lymph gland (PSLG,160), milk (154), pharyngeal swab (PhS, 98), rectal pinch (RP, 97) and faecal sample (97) from 161 cattle of organized cattle farms in north India suspected to be suffering from tuberculosis were analyzed.

On days 5, 28, and 42, camels 1, 2, and 3, respectively, were euthanized, and samples were collected from nasal turbinates, lungs, trachea, larynx, pharynx, liver, spleen, kidney, bladder, urine, duodenum, jejunum, colon, rectum, abomasum, forestomachs, prescapular
lymph node, retropharyngeal lymph node, tracheobronchial lymph node, mediastinal lymph node, mesenteric lymph node, medulla, and olfactory cortex.
Physical examination revealed soft fluctuating cyst like structure in the prescapular
, medial thigh regions and lateral thorax regions.
