    Six kids of the Small East African (SEA) goat and their crosses aged between 3-16 weeks from three districts of Kenya were examined postmortem. Clinically the goats were observed to have incoordination, muscle tremors, staggering, torticollis, paralysis of all limbs and recumbency with paddling movements. Those brought in extremis were recumbent, bleating like extreme pain and were attempting to chew but were unable. On postmortem all the goats had partially collapsed lungs and small dark red patches, two had congested brains and one had dilation of the lateral ventricles with excessive fluid. One kid had swollen carpal joints and a portion of the small intestine was almost completely encircled with lymphoid tissue. In all of them the mesenteric and other lymph nodes were moderately enlarged. Microscopically all goats had non-suppurative ventricular encephalitis, interstitial pneumonia and generalized lymphoid hyperplasia. One kid had arthritis affecting the carpal joints. On the basis of clinical presentations, gross and microscopic features, it was concluded that they all had died of the encephalitic form of caprine arthritis encephalitis (CAE). This is the first report of the nervous form of CAE in Kenya, and also the first to document encephalitis together with arthritis in a young goat (kid).
