Contagious ecthyma also called contagious pustular dermatitis or scabby mouth is a zoonotic disease, called orf in humans, which is caused by a double-stranded DNA virus, ORFV, and usually affects sheep and goats [1, 2].
These sheep were infected with scabby mouth disease and were killed and buried.
The disease is also called as Contagious Ecthyma, Contagious Pustular Dermatitis, Sore Mouth or Scabby Mouth (Thomas et al., 2003).
