Abstract: This study investigated the current circumstances of Lumpy Skin Disease in cattle at Banskhali Upazila, Chattogram over a two month of internship period. Lumpy Skin Disease is an infectious disease of cattle with significant economic importance and has spread out in Asia like Bangladesh, India, etc region. LSD re emerges once again in this country as an important threat to livestock health and dairy industry in Bangladesh by outbreaks this year 2020. This clinical report aimed to study epidemiology of LSD in 2019, using data on reported outbreaks in Banskhali region with the aid of Upazila Veterinay Hospital, Banskhali. Descriptive statistics were computed on population at risk, number of cases, morbidity and mortality rate. It was assessed by the number of reported outbreaks across different unions with the help of temporal and spatial distribution of LSD in this area. The total morbidity rate was 12.53% and mortality rate was 0.121 % . Although the rate was vulnerable but the farmers has gone through a economic loss. This study was also carried out to determine the changes in serum biochemical values of cattle naturally infected with LSDV. For this study, blood samples were obtained from clinically affected animals and healthy animals (n = 15 positive group, n = 15 control group) .Serum hepatic and renal damages markers were measured by auto-analyzer. The results of serum biochemical analysis showed that the level of aspartate amino-transferase, alanine aminotransferase were below than normal range however it was not significant difference for liver cell damage. But alkaline phosphatase and albumin concentrations were markedly increased and creatinine concentration was decreased in serum from infected animals. These findings may help in developing effective treatment for LSDV infection.
