Abstract

Pathological conditions of trachea and lungs of slaughtered buffaloes were investigated in the present study. A total of 80 slaughtered buffaloes were examined individually and trachea (80) and lungs (80) were collected for histopathology from the slaughterhouses of Barisal sadar, Barisal, Bangladesh, during the period from July 2006 to March 2007. Among them 9 trachea and 30 lungs were found to be apparently abnormal in naked eye. Grossly, tracheal and lungs lesions were 11.25% and 37.5% in buffaloes, respectively. The gross tracheal lesions were petechial haemorrhages on the mucosa of trachea and lungs lesions were haemorrhage and congestion in lungs (16.25%), hard nodule formation (7.5%), cyst in lungs (6.25%), emphysematous lung (5%) and thickened pleura (2.5%). In histopathology, congestion (5%) and mild tracheitis (8.75%) were recorded as tracheal lesions. Histopathological examination of lungs noticed a number of conditions or lesions such as chronic interstitial pneumonia (3.75%), edema fluid (3.75%), broncho-pneumonia (3.75%), bronchitis (2.5%), bronchiolitis (2.5%), pneumonia-congested stage (8.75%), hydatid cyst (6.25%), fibrinous pneumonia (3.75%), healed nodule (7.5%), purulent broncho-pneumonia (1.25%), fibrino-purulent pneumonia (1.25%), subacute fibrinous pneumonia (1.25%), pulmonary adenomatosis (1.25%), pleuritis (2.5%) and hemosiderosis (3.75%). For morphological descriptions, the lesions were categorized into various types; however a single section showed intermixed of various lesions.
