Observations were made since the spring of 1992 in the Atlas mountains. Histopathological examination showed a pronounced papillomatous-type of hyperplasia, which became filiform papilloma in chronic cases. The changes resembled those seen in bovine papillomas and verruca caused by papovavirus (BPV1-BPV6). The diseases could not be transmitted and no treponema species were isolated. It is concluded that the disease has a multifactorial origin and the term dermatitis digitalis papillomatosa is suggested
