Some epidemiological features of camel contagious ecthyma ( CCE) were studied , with infection rate of 35.25% in four Iraqi governovates; The results showed variability in regarding age groups and months of the year.Genomic DNA of major envelop protein B2L gene 1088bp from Iraqi isolates of the virus from the clinical specimens of this study were amplified by endpoint polymerasechain reaction ( conventional PCR ) using specific primers , then sequenced and analyzed by phylogeneiticcomparison with world reference strains of other parapoxviruses . The Iraqi isolates were clustered together with the Indian camel contagious ecthyma virus strain accession number GQ39365-1 B2L ( camel India ) and Indian camel Orf virus strain accession number GU460370.1 B2L ( camel ,India) indicating high genetic homology with them .
