Caseous lymphadenitis caused by Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis is mainly a disease of sheep and goats and is of zoonotic importance. The disease has rarely been recorded in cattle and mostly in its superficial form. The present communication deals with an extremely rare case of corynebacterium-induced mesenteric pseudotuberculosis in a cow calf. The gross, cytologic, histopathologic and microbial isolation as well as cultural characteristics of the organisms have been described, as well as the mode of spread of the disease to the mesenteric lymph nodes. To the authors’ knowledge, this is the first report of mesenteric caseous lymphadenitis in a cow calf.Keywords:
