Abstract
Several authors have reported the occurrence of rinderpest in the came!. Lingard (1905) is quoted by Curasson (19+7) as having inoculated virulent blood into five Indian camels and produced a temperature reaction accompanied by vesicles and ulcers in the mouth, skin eruptions and, in one instance, diarrhoea. The striking feature of this report was that camel blood when inoculated back into an ox produced clinical rinderpest. Curasson (19+7) also quotes Conti (1913) as having recognised a mild form of rinderpest in camels in Eritrea, and Cross (1917) as having inoculated three Indian camels and obtained a rinderpest reaction in at least one.
