Vaccinia virus was used as vaccine to eradicate smallpox. We report a zoonotic case of vaccinia virus infection in a 30-year-old patient who became infected after handling sick dairy cattle. The patient had inflamed lesions and systemic symptoms. Laboratory findings were indicative of down-modulated immune responses to the virus.
