Overview

Top of page

The identity of contagious agalactia of goats and sheep and its cause are not completely clear. Mycoplasma agalactiae is the most favoured cause (see data sheet on Mycoplasma agalactiae infections), but three types of causative organism have been identified. One is non-pathogenic, another causes most outbreaks of the disease, but the third is associated with severe udder oedema and a high mortality in goats. M. mycoides var. mycoides, M. arginini, M. capricolum and M. putrefaciens are also recognized as the same disease. After Radostits et al. (1994).

This disease is on the list of diseases notifiable to the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE). The distribution section contains data from OIE's WAHID database on disease occurrence. Please see the AHPC library for further information on this disease from OIE, including the International Animal Health Code and the Manual of Standards for Diagnostic Tests and Vaccines. Also see the website: www.oie.int.
