Incidence S. nasale (causative agent of nasal schistosomiasis) in graded murrah buffaloes was studied. 4 (8%) among healthy and 46 (92%) among suspected buffaloes were diagnosed with nasal schistosomiasis. Area under investigation was highly irrigated giving ample scope for exposure of animals to cercaria of S. nasale. Buffaloes showing signs of reduced water intake, reduced milk yield, normal body temperature and normal feed intake were suspected with S. nasale and the results obtained are in agreement with these observations. It is concluded that buffaloes showing above signs may be suspected with nasal schistosomiasis, especially in highly irrigated areas.
