In 1974, Oladosu, Isoun & Dipeolu reported 4 cases of clinical Theileria annulata infection in exotic and indigenous cattle at the Teaching and Research farm of the University of Ibadan. This report aroused some speculation and some colleagues believed that our report was probably clinical infections of T. mutans. Subsequent observations, however, convinced us that we were not dealing with T. mutans but most probably with T. annulata. This paper is an analysis of the further investigations which had followed since we published our paper in 1974 and they will be reported in three phases.
