Abstract
Contagious caprine pleuropneumonia (CCPP) is an economically important mycoplasmal disease of goats with a wide geographical distribution. The main &etiological agents of this cliaease include Mycoplasma strain F38- and F38-like organisms, M. mycoides sulyp. capri,M. copricolum and M.o{e (Lefevre et aI., 1987; Mac Owan,1976; Kibor and Waiyaki, 1985 and Harbi d. 121., 1981). Most of the above mycoplumas have been confirmed to occur in Oman (Jones and Wood,1988).
