Title : The prevalence of bovine theileriosis due tu Theileria parva in Itombwe Hills, centre Eastern Zaïre
Authors : A.M. MAKUMYAVIRI et M. HABIMANA
Summary : Using blood film technique, the present study shows that, Theileria parva is prevalent in cattle (29,4 p. 100) reared on Itombwe hills, Zaïre. The infection rate has been influenced by the age of animals as well as by the season. Indeed, the infection was more frequent in calves less than one year old (30-71,4 p. 100) and/or during rainy season. From 339 ticks collected on cattle, Rhipicephalus appendiculalus was the most frequent species (57,2 p. 100) showing that it should be the main vector of infection in the area.
Keywords : bovine theileriosis - Theileria parva - Rhipicephalus appendiculatus - incidence - age - season.
