This study was designed to investigate the ability of Nubian goat to acquire Trichophyton verrucosum infection. Twenty goats aged 9-12 months were used in this study. Sixteen goats have been successfully infected with the isolated Trichophyton verrucosum isolated from camels naturally infected with dermatophytosis and four goats were used as control. All infected goats showed similar lesions, which were characterized by circumscribed crusty hairless lesions. Haematologically there was

Biochemically, except uric acid, no significant alteration was observed in total serum protein, albumin, globulin, urea, creatinine, sodium and potassium.
