Ovine rinderpest, also commonly known as peste des petits ruminants (PPR), is a contagious disease affecting goats and sheep in Africa (from Tropic of Cancer to Equator), the Middle-East and the Indian subcontinent. But since June 2008, the disease invaded Morocco , which indicates a crossing of the natural barrier of Sahara. It is caused by a species of the Morbillivirus genus of viruses. The disease is highly contagious, and has roughly an 80 percent mortality rate in acute cases.In the first time, kata was the appellation of a stomatitis and pneumoenteritis of Nigerian dwarf goat. Peste des Petits Ruminants was the French name of a similar disease in sheep and goat first described in Ivory Coast in 1942. Both diseases were shown to be very close to each others. Many authors prefer the appellation of "Ovine Rinderpest". But official instances like FAO and OIE use the French name "Peste des Petits Ruminants", "Peste Des Petits Ruminants", "Peste-des-Petits-Ruminants" or "Peste-des-petits-ruminants", even in English.
