Author(s): Mohammed S Mohammed, Mohamed A Abass Mohamed, Adil EA Bala and Adam D Abakar
Abstract: Sudan is the second largest camel populated country in the world. Samples were collected at Great Butana (part of five states) from four sites: two camel markets: Tamboul and Wadnimir (Gezira state) and two Small-scale livestock production (semi-intensive management): Showak (Gadarif state), Girba (Kasala state). Six hundred camels of different breed, gender and age were examined during the three seasons to determine the prevalence of toxoplasmosis. Hematological method by latex agglutination test was used to examine the venous blood samples. The overall prevalence [180 infected animals (30%)] was higher in the two camels' market additionally, high prevalence was reported in old animals group. Seasonality has no significant variation however, higher prevalence incidence was in autumn. Gender's effect reported high prevalence in females than males. It could be concluded that such results can aid in updating such disease epidemiology. However, further studies are required for better and continual evaluation of such disease occurrence and management.
