Dentists, physicians and other health personnel may develop herpes simplex on their hands.

Slide 77 - M. marinum

Slide 78 - Milker's nodule

  SLIDE 78 - Milker's nodule 
Milker's nodule is due to a viral infection which occurs on the udders of cows and can be transmitted to man. The lesions are nodular rather than vesicular and run a self-limiting course in several months.

Slide 79 - Orf
