Caprine arthritis encephalitis

Caprine Arthritis Encephalitis (CAE) is a lentiviral infection of goats which may lead to chronic disease of the joints and on rare occasions encephalitis.

The symptoms of this disease are varied. Mature goats can develop arthritis and find walking painful. The knee joints may be inflamed and swollen, and the goats will slowly lose condition. In some cases they will not be able to stand.

As of 2012 there is no known cure. Goats which test positive for the disease are typically separated from the rest of the herd.
