Abstract: We conducted a seroepidemiological survey to determine the prevalence of caseous lymphadenitis (CLA) in goat herds in Minas Gerais state, Brazil. Serum samples were collected from goats (n = 676) from 108 rural properties in 2001, covering most of the sub-regions of this ca. 586,500 square kilometer state. Antibodies against Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis secreted proteins were detected by an indirect enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Most of the animals (78.9%) tested positive for CLA; 98% of flocks presented at least one seropositive animal. Goats managed under an extensive production system had a significantly higher seroprevalence of CLA than those in intensive and semi-intensive operations. The age distribution of the animals in the flocks affected the prevalence of this disease; however, goat breed did not. We found seropositivity against C. pseudotuberculosis to be highly prevalent in these Brazilian goat herds; consequently, appropriate management practices for the control of CLA should be implemented.
