    Countries in the Indian subcontinent are currently facing a deadly epidemic of lumpy skin disease (LSD).  LSD is primarily a disease of cattle. Buffaloes may sometimes develop mild illness, however, other domestic animals are considered resistant to LSD. We confirmed the LSDV infection in camels as evidenced by skin nodules on the body surface of the affected camels, isolation of LSD virus (LSDV) and amplification of LSDV-specific gene segments from the skin nodules (PCR), nucleotide sequencing of the viral genome and, demonstration of anti-LSDV antibodies in serum. Phylogenetic analysis based on nucleotide sequencing of ORF011, ORF012 and ORF036 revealed that the virus (LSDV/Camel/India/2022/Bikaner) is related to the historical NI-2490/Kenya/KSGP-like field strains which are predominantly circulating in the Indian subcontinent. This is the first report wherein LSDV has been to infect camels. Copyright © 2023 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
