The camel depicted here, in this 1981 image, displayed numerous maculopapular cutaneous lesions in various stages of development, which had been caused by the Camelpox virus. This virus is a member of the family, Poxviridae and of the genus Orthopoxvirus, along with its infamous cousin the Variola virus, which causes smallpox. Though this virus does affect camels, humans handlers who come into close contact with infected animals, can contract this virus.
