Abstract: Lumpy skin Disease (LSD) is a transboundary disease of cattle originated in Africa. In recent years it has emerged in different countries with a severe impact on production. Bangladesh has now encountered the second consecutive year’s outbreak of LSD. The first outbreak occurred in 2019 while disease manifested with high fever, skin nodules and edema. The reported morbidity rate was 10 to 20% with a 1-5% mortality rate. Sharp decrease in milk production, long time treatment cost and reproductive difficulties lead to the widespread financial loss of farmers. But the scarcity of literature on the epidemiology, vector and genetic characteristic of the virus in Bangladesh cause delay in diagnosis and reporting which make the situation become worst. Quarantine and mass vaccination are efficient tools to halt the epidemic.
