Abstract

Schistosomus reflexus (SR) is an unusual and lethal congenital malformation rarely observed in bovine calves due to autosomal recessive disorders. We report a dead bovine calf with SR after cesarean section, which was characterized by the inversely curved and shortened spine with ankylosed limbs, exposed hemorrhagic viscera, and protruded tongue.
