caprine arthritis-encephalitis (CAE)
a multisystem disease of goats involving synovial lined connective tissue, caused by a a member of the family Retroviridae, subfamily Lentivirinae. There is a high degree of relatedness with the lentivirus associated with maedi-visna and ovine progressive pneumonia in sheep. It causes chronic arthritis in adults and leukoencephalomyelitis, characterized by ataxia, proprioceptive loss and paralysis, in young kids. Indurative mastitis, and less commonly chronic pneumonia and chronic encephalomyelitis, occur in older goats. The primary mode of transmission is through the colostrum and milk. Called also big knee, caprine leukoencephalomyelitis, and the indurative mastitis—hardbag.

caprine enzootic nasal granuloma
infectious disease of goats and sheep caused by a retrovirus; characterized clinically by sero-mucoid nasal discharge, cough, dyspnea, stertor, emaciation, death; enzootic in the flock.
caprine herpesvirus-1 (CpHV-1)
an alphaherpesvirus within the family Herpesviridae. Restriction endonuclease analysis indicates that there are different strains but these are not geographically clustered. Causes abortion, neonatal disease, vulvovaginitis and balanposthitis.
caprine herpesvirus-2 (CpHV-2)
a gammaherpesvirus isolated from goats which is closely related antigenically to ovine herpesvirus-2 (OvHV-2), the sheep associated malignant catarrhal fever virus. Another, also closely related virus, called deer herpesvirus (DHV), has been isolated. The pathogenicity of these newly recognized viruses is not known.
caprine idiopathic dermatitis
