Per-vaginal delivery of Schistosomus Reflexus fetus in a crossbred Jersy cow: A case report

Author(s): Somnath MN, Ketan, M Prasanth Kumar, K Murugavel and S Kantharaj
Abstract: A five-year-old pluriparous pregnant cow which completed the gestation period was brought to large animal unit of the VGO ward, VCC with a history of rupture of water bag eight hours before, followed by unproductive straining with visceral content seen handing from the vaginal passage. Detailed examination per-vaginum revealed that the fetus was in dorso-sacral position, with its head in the birth canal and limbs extending cranially in ventral presentation. Based on clinico-gynaecological investigation, the case was tentatively diagnosed as Schistosomus Reflexus. With traction on the head and forelimbs, a female Schistosomus Reflexus monster was retrieved per-vaginally along with its fetal membranes and visceral contents. Following supportive therapy, the dam had uneventful recovery.
