An atypical case of contagious ecthyma in a wether, following severe thermal injury to the skin, is reported. Histologically, extensive verrucous growths at the edges of the burned skin were areas of severe epidermal hyperplasia and hyperkeratosis. Intracellular viral particles were present, and sections of skin were positive for ovine contagious ecthyma virus by a fluorescent antibody test.
