|Types||Bovine papular stomatitis, orf, milker's nodule|
Farmyard pox is a group of closely related Parapoxviruses of sheep and cattle that can cause bovine papular stomatitis, orf and milker's nodule in humans.
Types include bovine papular stomatitis, orf and milker's nodule.
Infected keratocytes in skin swell and die. The stain Lendrum’s phloxine tartazine, may be used to identify farmyard pox inclusion bodies. Other tests include culture, fluorescent antibody test and electron microscopy.
Cowpox, horsepox and smallpox may look similar and the histology may appear the same.
