Caseous lymphadenitis (CLA) is a chronic contagious disease. It is caused by Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis and it affects the majority of sheep-rearing areas around the world. The best option to avoid spread and to control this disease is identification of infected animals. This identification can be done by clinical exams which helps in detecting the presences of abscesses in superficial lymph nodes.
