A recent survey of cattle in Sri Lanka revealed that 40% of the cattle were infected with </span><span style="font-size: medium;"><i>Mammomonogamus</i></span><span style="font-size: medium;"><i>laryngeus </i></span><span style="font-size: medium;">(Aken et al., 1989</span><span style="font-size: medium;"><i>)</i></span><span style="font-size: medium;">. In this single report of infection in the cat the worms were found in the frontal sinuses, nasal sinuses, and pharynx of the domestic cat. The females are 9 to 22 mm long; the males are 3 to 5.5 mm long. The males have spicules ranging from 23.5 µm to 27 µm in length. There is a large buccal capsule. The eggs in the frontal sinuses and feces measured 47-55 µm by 86-94 µm. The eggs were passed in the feces in the six- to twelve-celled stage. Nothing is known about the biology of the worms or clinical signs assoicated witht he infection.</span></p> <p align="JUSTIFY"><span style="font-size: medium;"><b>REFERENCES:</b></span></p> <p align="JUSTIFY"><span style="font-size: medium;">Aken D, Bont J, Fransen J, Vercruysse J. 1989. </span><span style="font-size: medium;"><i>Mammomonogamus</i></span><span style="font-size: medium;"><i>laryngeus</i></span><span style="font-size: medium;"> (Railliet, 1899) infections in cattle from Sri Lanka.
