Morphological and Histopathological Studies of Trichuris Ovis in Goat Intestine

Morphological and histopathological study of large intestine of goats infected with Trichuris ovis revealed the embedded attenuated anterior end in mucosa, surrounded with fibroblast and leucocytes in histopathological sections. There was no sign of fibrosis and necrosis. Crypts of Leiberkuhn, muscularis mucosa, submucosa and muscularis externa were clearly differentiated with slight infiltration of inflammatory cells like mononuclear cells, leucocytes, goblet cells along with epithelial changes and overall mucosal architecture in vicinity of worm penetration.
