The clinical signs and pathological findings of clinical Q fever in dairy goats in the Netherlands are described. The disease is characterized by endemic or epidemic abortion in late pregnancy, stillbirth, or the birth of weak kids. These consequences of Coxiella burnetii infection appear to have increased during recent years in the Dutch dairy goat population. Detection of the agent in placental tissue by immunohistochemistry has proven diagnostically useful.
