Horse pox is a benign disease characterized by the typical pox lesions on the lower limbs or around the muzzle and buccal mucosa. This is a rare disease, caused by a DNA virus of genus Orthopoxvirus belonging to the family Poxviridae.

In the buccal form, similar lesions appear on lips and spread to entire mouth and sometimes to the pharynx, larynx, and nostril. There is painful stomatitis with salivation and anorexia.
