As per the literature scanned, outbreaks of LSD in cattle and Buffalo have been reported in certain pockets of world (endemically). Outbreaks of LSD have been reported in late 2019 (as per OIE report) in India. Recently, the outbreaks have been documented in certain parts of Maharashtra, especially Beed district and Marathwada (Karyarambh newspaper, 2020). Therefore, it was found pertinent to publish a review article, highlighting the recent updates of this disease. This would not only help field Veterinarians to tackle this field problem, but also to the laboratory scientists to undertake further research on control and prophylaxis strategies.
