Abstract: Myxobolus cerebralis infecting the brain of Heteropneustes fossilis (singhi) was identified morphologically, histopathologically and by molecular method captured from the beels of Raidighi, South 24 Parganas, West Bengal, India. Infection of M. cerebralis was uncommon in Heteropneustes fossilis brain. The infection rate was low to moderate. Microscopically Myxobolus parasites were detected in brain of Heteropneustes fossilis (singhi). Large plasmodia were localized within brain, causing severe necrotic changes and vacuolization. Inflammatory infiltrates agglomeration, nuclear hypertrophy, vacuolization, infiltration of blood cell and haemorrhages were extensively observed in the brain. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with primers specific for the family Myxobolidae was used to amplify an approximately 1600 base pairs (bp) long fragment of the 18S ribosomal RNA gene.
