11/23. Orf and pregnancy.

    A 31-year-old woman presented with orf on the forefingers at 34 weeks of gestation. The disease, contracted after handling sheep a week before, was uncomplicated, and the patient gave birth at term to a normal baby. Although some cases with features suggestive of viremic spread had been described, the authors find an overall benign picture of orf in man and recommend symptomatic therapeutic measures.

12/23. Human orf in israel. Report of three cases.

    Orf, a viral disease of sheep and goats transmissible to man, is described in three patients living in Israeli cooperative settlements. Characteristically, the disease was manifested as a single, self-limited skin lesion in two of the patients, while in the third patient an unusual coexistence of orf and bullous pemphigoid was found. Not uncommonly, orf may be found in persons working with sheep and goats. awareness of this disease by physicians may avoid unnecessary testing and treatments.

13/23. A seven-year-old girl with orf of the hand.

    A seven-year-old child presented with orf of the hand. There was a clear history of contact with sheep. The lesion was incised and drained and healed spontaneously within five weeks. The features of orf infection are described as a reminder of a diagnosis to be remembered in the urban accident and emergency department or hand clinic.

14/23. Orf. A case report with histologic, electron microscopic, and immunoperoxidase studies.

    Orf is an occupational skin disease acquired through contact with infected animals. In humans, orf is usually a self-limited disease that resolves spontaneously within four to 24 weeks. We report a case with multiple lesions of orf, acquired by contact with a wild sheep. The patient was temporarily immunosuppressed by a concomitant viral hepatitis. We reviewed the histologic and electron microscopic findings. Also, we attempted to stain the parapoxvirus in the skin of the patient, using the immunoperoxidase technique. The antiserum was obtained from sheep immunized against orf. We used lesional skin from sheep infected with orf as a positive control. The negative results of this technique in the patient's skin indicated that parapoxvirus infecting wild sheep is antigenically different from that causing the disease in domestic animals.

16/23. Orf: a family with unusual complications.

    Three members of a farming family and their local postman contracted orf. One of those affected had had no direct contact with infected sheep. Two of the family developed a widespread papulo-vesicular eruption of the skin and mucosae with pyrexia, malaise and lymphadenopathy lasting 4-5 weeks. The eruption did not resemble erythema multiforme or the toxic erythemas usually associated with this infection.

17/23. Ocular infection with orf virus.

    orf virus infection of the pericanthal eyelid skin and conjunctiva was diagnosed by electron microscopy. Orf is a paravaccinia virus responsible for contagious pustular dermatitis in sheep and goats. It occasionally affects humans. The patient was a farmwife who had recently handled lambs. She had a raised ulcerating lesion at the inner canthus, follicular conjunctivitis, and lymphadenopathy. Treatment with 35% idoxuridine in dimethylsulfoxide on the skin and 0.5% idoxuridine ointment on the conjunctiva led to resolution after three weeks.

18/23. Perianal orf.

    The parapox viral infection orf is usually diagnosed without difficulty when the lesions have the characteristic morphology and there is an appropriate history of contact with sheep. Two cases of orf in a perineal location in young children are presented to illustrate modification of the physical signs by flexural occluded sites. Electron microscopy of scrapings from the lesions established the diagnosis.

19/23. Clinical and histologic features of orf.

    A 24-year-old man developed a papular eruption on his hands after butchering sheep. Viral cultures and serum antibody levels confirmed the diagnosis of orf. The clinical features, histologic findings, and diagnostic criteria of orf are described.

20/23. Orf occurring in missouri.

    We report two cases of orf, a common viral disease of sheep, which occurred in residents of missouri. A survey taken among sheep raisers in missouri revealed that many were unaware of this as a potential human disease. It is important for physicians to be able to recognize this lesion so that radical methods of therapy are not employed. The lesion heals without scarring and without specific therapy. Complications are rare.
