Text (summary): 

LUMPY skin disease (LSD) is a transboundary, systemic, viral disease of cattle that has traditionally been found in southern Africa. It has steadily expanded its geographical boundaries and in the past five years moved very efficiently through the Middle East and into eastern Europe and Russia. Current control measures have been unable to restrict the spread of the disease and it now represents a direct threat to the rest of Europe.
