Abstract: 

In the winter of 2009, a report received by our clinic indicated a 10% mortality rate in a sheep farm around Tehran and local inspection revealed that a total of 10 lambs and kids had died during one week from a herd of 100. Clinical signs consisted of local alopecia and abscesses in the limbs of the affected animals. Small mobile larvae were observed at the dermal ulcers. There was a volcanic ulcer at the end of the finger of a farm worker as well with the larvae moving out of the ulcer inside warm water. Sampling of animal feces and larvae present on the skin was carried out and Strongylus papillosus was diagnosed at the laboratory.
