Jamshidi K, Zakian A., Survey of pulmonary lesions in camels (Camelus dromedarius), Onl J Vet Res., 27 (9): 516-519, 2023. Authors examined abbatoir lung tissue samples of 100 camels finding that 33 had one or more lesions. Major lung lesions included interstitial pneumonia 30 (91%), fibrosis 15 (45%), pneumoconiosis 24 (28%), atelectasis 27 (82%), emphysema 24 (28%), hydatidosis 12 (37%), calcified cyst 12 (37%), bronchopneumonia 18 (55%), parasitic pneumonia 1 (9%). Our findings suggested that pneumoconiosis may have induced most lesions described above.
