Mostafa M. Kassem, Mahmoud H. El Kammar, Ali A. Abdel-wahed.

Abstract
Acquired subcutaneous bursitis is a common condition seen in both buffaloes and cattle. The aim of this current investigation was to state the most prevalent types of subcutaneous bursitis in cattle and buffaloes. The study was carried out on 81 cases (63 buffaloes and 18 cattle). The affected adult buffaloes were 49 cases which affected with Olecranon bursitis (32 animals); pre-sternal bursitis (11 cases) pre-carpal bursitis (6 cases), while the young buffaloes were 14 calves that affected with Olecranon bursitis (2 calves), pre-sternal bursitis (8 calves) and pre-carpal bursitis (4 calves). Only two cases out of 18 cattle were affected with pre-sternal bursitis while the remained animals have pre-carpal one. Subcutaneous bursitis was diagnosed based on case history, clinical signs and exploratory puncture. Olecranon and pre-sternal bursitis were treated medically and surgically while pre-carpal bursitis was treated medically only.
In conclusion Olecranon, pre-sternal and pre-carpal bursitis is considered the most common acquired subcutaneous bursitis in buffaloes and cattle. They could be corrected medically and/or surgically with encouraging results.

Key words: Buffalo, cattle, olecranon, bursitis, pre-sternal, pre-carpal, treatment.
