Five hundred goats reared in several states of Peninsular Malaysia were examined for lesions of casesous lymphadenitis. A total of six suspected goats were slaughtered and examined. Sterile cotton swabs were used to take the sample from abscesses in the affected lymph nodes. The swabs were streaked onto blood agar.
