It is commonly referred to as Cheesy Gland or Lympho, and is associated with Thin Ewe Syndrome Caseous lymphadenitis (CLA) is an important clinical disease, found mainly in sheep. It can have a high economic impact on sheep production, as it can decrease the value and quality of the carcass or wool of the affected animal. The disease causes abscesses in the lymph nodes, which can rupture and release infectious pus
