In this study. clinic, bacteriologic and pathological examinations were performed on udders of 500 goats slaughtered at Konya and Beyşehir abattoirs for mastitis. Mastitis was detected in 55 goats (11 %), 1 0 (2 %) of which had clinical mastitis, and 45(%9) of which had subclinical mastitis. Coagulase (+) Staphylococcus (38,2 %), coagulase(-) Staphylococcus (11.8 %), Corynebacterium spp (23.5 %), E. coli (14.7 %). Yeast (5.9 %) and Fla-vobacterium spp.(5.9 %)were isolated from the milk samples taken from udders with mastitis. 66 udder lobes taken from these goats histopathologically revealed mastrtis and galactophoritis catarrhalis acuta (8 lobes), mastitis and ga-lactophoritis catarrhalis subacuta (2 lobes). mastitis and galactophorflis catarrhalis chronica (40 lobes), mastitis and galactophoritis catarrhalis chronica (5 lobes) and mastitis interstitialis nonpurulenta (11 lobes). Supramammar lymph nodes had lymphadenitis simplex (4 cases). lymphadenitis chronica (9 cases). lymphadenitis hyperplastica(20 cases) and fibrosis (4 cases).
