Orf disease is a viral disease of sheep and goats that can appear in humans too. The usual presentation is in sites that have direct contact. Clinical manifestation of Orf disease may be unusual in burn patients.
In this case report, we described a rare presentation of Orf disease on a burn scar of a two-year girl. The patient had a history of animal contact and the presence of Orf virus was confirmed using pathologic studies and Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR).
Few other reports of Orf disease on a burn scar are also available in scientific literature which propose the higher risk of these patients for development of Orf disease.
