ABSTRACT

Examination of carcasses of Himalayan goral (Naemorhedus goral) revealed nodular, pox-like eruptions in the skin. Similar disease was also seen in domestic goats (Capra aegagrus hircus) in the same area. Goatpox virus was identified as the etiology of the disease in both cases, with probable transmission between the species.
