Abstract: Contagious ecthyma is an infectious dermatitis of sheep and goats that affects primarily the lips of young animals. The disease is usually more severe in goats than in sheep. Humans are occasionally affected, and the disease has been reported in dogs that have eaten infected carcasses. A yeanling referred with high fever (42̊C), anorexia, depression, mucopurulent discharge from nasal cavity, conjunctivitis and abnormal respiratory sounds (wheeze) with proliferative lesions on gum and obvious lesions on tongue. Histological samples were obtained from gingival and lingual mucosa and sent for pathology laboratory and finally diagnosis approaches to ORF.
