Abstract Post-mortem examination of 658 goats showed that 17 (2.5\%) exhibited hepatic abscesses. The following bacteria were isolated: Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis (58.9\%), Escherichia coli (11.8\%), Corynebacterium sp. (11.8\%), Pasteurella haemolytica (5.9\%), Proteus sp. (5.9\%) and Staphylococcus aureus (5.9\%). Hepatic abscesses occurred more frequently in adult animals. Eleven of the 17 goats (64.7\%) were older than 12 months of age. Four goats (23.5\%) were 12 months of age and only two (11.8\%) were less than 1 year of age. All of the goats with hepatic abscesses were in poor nutritional condition and the abscesses were invariably associated with accompanying pathological disorders at other body sites.
