When cases occur it is often difficult to establish the actual cause of the disease. Most of the cases in man, however, can be attributed to orf virus and BPSV; the latter can also manifest itself on the udders, predominantly of older animals (PHLS Communicable Disease Surveillance Centre, 1982). The expression "milker's node" (see chapter 6) has established itself in human medicine as the designation of a zoonosis, regardless which one of the three relevant virus species has caused the infection.

The disease may resemble local affections as seen in hyperkeratosis (X disease, chloronaphthalene poisoning and other intoxications; Schmidt, 1967). The terms "stomatitis pseudoaphtosa" or "oral papillomatosis" are misleading, since they suggest an other etiology. , 1965; Priesslinger, 1982).
Of the small laboratory animals, apparently only the rabbit can be infected, but not reproducibly and only with extremely large amounts of virus (Abdussalam, 1957; Darbyshire, 1961). Horses and pigs are resistant to orf, but monkeys can probably acquire the disease. Ecthyma is a zoonosis. It normally induces proliferative local lesions on the skin and mucous membranes (Liess, 1962; Falk, 1978). The virus can become generalized in immunosuppressed animals and humans. Human cases are attributable to contact with sheep, but also reindeer and musk-ox were reported as source of infection (Falk, 1978).
