  • Damage to prickle cells (stratum spinosum).
  • Appears as accumulation of fluid within epithelium, quickly erodes leaving hyperaemic stratum germinativum.
  • Heals by proliferation of new cells, so long as infection does not continue.


May be caused by:

  1. Ingestion of hot food (corrosive liquids)
  2. Systemic viral diseases. e.g:
    1. Foot and Mouth disease - ruminants and pigs
    2. Vesicular Stomatitis Virus - horse, pigs, cattle
    3. Vesicular Exanthema - pigs

N.B. All are indistinguishable from FMD clinically.
