Abstract

Caseous lymphadenitis is a common disease of sheep in Australia, and is a condition in which hard abscesses, filled with thick cheesy pus, form in the lymph glands in various parts of the body. The term "caseous" refers to the cheesy nature of the pus, and "lymphadenitis" means inflammation of the lymph glands.
