Abstract Cases of orf virus infection in human in Turkey have been reported for many years. Scab material from a man was found positive by PCR using pan-parapox-specific primers for parapoxvirus infection. The amplicon was purified and sequenced. The present study provides for the first time a phylogenetic analysis of parapoxviruses from Turkey. The partial B2L gene sequence of a Turkish orf virus from a human presented here may be useful for characterization of parapoxvirus infections in Turkey based on the phylogenetic analysis studies.
