Osteomalacia is a common deficiency disorder in adult buffaloes of Marathwada, reared in draught areas or phosphorous deficient soil. The buffaloes showed typical signs of arched back, stiff gait and progressive loss of body weight. The condition was diagnosed on the basis of history, clinical signs exhibited, decreased in inorganic phosphorous and calcium levels and absence of any foreign body syndrome. Oral inorganic phosphorous preparation was found to be successful for management of osteomalacia.
