Abstract
<jats:p>Background: This study was carried out to identify Theileria spp. infections in goats and ticksin Kermanshah Prov­ince, western Iran from May–Sep 2015.&#x0D; Methods: For differentiation of different Theileria spp. both blood and tick samples were examined by nested PCR-RFLP.&#x0D; Results: Light microscopy of blood smears revealed Theileria spp. infection in 22 (5.5%), while 68 (17%) of blood samples were positive using nested PCR. Out of 68 positive samples, 85.3% (58/68) and 11.7% (8/68) were respec­tively positive for Theileria ovis and T. lestoquardi. Mixed infection was detected in 3% (2/68) cases. Overall, 420 ixodid ticks belong to seven differen...
