Resumen

BEZUIDENHOUT, J D. A short history of sheep scab. J. S. Afr. Vet. Assoc. [online]. 2011, vol.82, n.4, pp.188-189. ISSN 2224-9435.

The history of sheep scab is briefly discussed since it was first mentioned in 180 BC. It was probably introduced to South Africa by the early settlers and was mentioned as a problem by Simon van der Stel, although its cause was only discovered in 1809. Various measures taken over the centuries to control or eradicate the disease, which has always been of considerable economic importance, are discussed, as well as the failures and reasons why it is still with us today.

Palabras clave : Brandsiekte; dermatitis; Psoroptes ovis; scab legislation; sheep dipping; sheep.
