An obstructive, upper respiratory tract disease characterised by severe dyspnoea and deaths has been recognised in Texel sheep. It is caused by chronic suppuration within the arytenoid cartilages of the larynx resulting in swelling and occlusion of the lumen. The clinical and pathological features of the disease are described and its possible cause and treatment are discussed.
