Abstract Humans can be infected by certain virus zoonoses through occupational exposure to the pathological agent; the infection appears clinically in the form of cutaneous and/or mucous lesions. The study covers zoonoses encountered in temperate climates: foot-and-mouth disease, cow-pox, sheep-pox, orf (ecthyma contagiosum), Aujeszky's disease (pseudo-rabies or infectious bulbar paralysis), milkers' nodules; it deals with the comparative pathology of these diseases and their medico-social aspects.
