ABSTRACT: Introduction & Objective: Ectyma Conaginosum (ORF) is a viral infection with benign presentation in human and transmission occurs after direct contact with animals (domestic) or indirect contact due to infected meat or knife. The lesion usually is in hands as single, but other parts of the body can also be involved. This case report is the first record with skin lesions in hand and leg. Case: The patient was a thirty years old man with history of skin trauma about 31 days ago ( second finger of left hand was injured by infected knife during cutting meet ) and coinfection occurred when he itched the leg. Skin lesion appeared in the area of skin trauma and the site of itched leg in less than one week because of disease duration, ORF diagnosis was made by sample resection of skin lesions and histopathological study, then the patient was treated by daily skin lesion disinfection with betadin. Conclusion: The most common site of ORF was in hand as single eruption but multiple eruptions and other sites of body could not rule out ORF , so history of contact with domestic animals ( direct or indirect ) was a good guide to the diagnosis and prevention of unnecessary treatment .
