The present exploration was undertaken to study the histopathology of a cestode Cotugnia from Gallus domesticus at Aurangabad Maharashtra. The cestode worm adhers itself to host tissue and sucks the nourishment. The T.S. of infected intestine showed that the damage caused by parasite to intestinal villi. The worms firmly attach to the mucosal wall and starts pad formation at its base. The worms are able to reach the intestinal tissue and to attach them. Due to attachment it has disturbed the structure of intestinal mucosa and broken the innermost lining of intestine also. Some observations shows that worms are firmly attached to villi of intestine, due to this attachment ,necrosis in host tissue was also observed. Few tissues of villi are heavily infected by parasite and goes into necrotic stage.
