Additional Information

Orf virus is a disease of sheep (Scabby mouth) and goats that occurs as a self-limiting disease (contagious ecthyma) in humans exposed to these animals. Localised lesions are usually found on hands and sometimes face. Lesions are usually large nodules that can vesiculate and ulcerate. The lesion is painful and regional lymphadenopathy may be present.
