Abstract: Lumpy skin disease is one of the major health problems of cattle and water buffalo that cause momentous economic losses in the livestock industry. The disease is caused by Lumpy skin disease virus under the genus Capripox virus which is mechanically transmitted by arthropod vectors. Clinically it is characterised by distinctive nodular lesions on the skin which consequently results in loss of production and fertility. As the treatment is only symptomatic therefore; prevention is more effective way to avoid the economic losses.
