A new publication on club lamb fungus is available on the web. The May 2007 publication was written by Virginia Tech veterinarians Drs. Nancy Currin and Kevin Pelzer.

Club lamb fungus affects the skin of sheep and is also known as woolrot, lumpy wool, sheep ringworm, and sheep dermatophytosis. Club lamb fungus got its name because it most commonly affects show lambs. It is a highly contagious disease and is contagious to humans.
