The major economic losses associated to coenurosis
in small ruminants are abattoir brain condemnation, time and loss of energy to dissect the brain of small ruminants for export purpose (Adane et al., 2015) Shepherds or the owner often facilitate the contamination of the environment by opening the skull of infected sheep leaving the Coenurus cyst free to be eaten by dogs or feeding them directly with the definitive host (Scala and Varcasia, 2006)

This cyst affects the central nervous system (CNS) of sheep, goats and sometimes cattle and gives rise to neurological signs of coenurosis
such as gid, ataxia, head deviation and blindness (Soulsby, 1982).

The disease is known as gid or sturdy which affects the central nervous system (CNS), particularly the brain of sheep, goats and sometimes cattle and gives rise to neurological signs of coenurosis
is a parasitic disease caused by larval stage of Taenia multiceps which affects various ruminant species particularly sheep and goat, occasionally humans (Soulsby, 1982).
