Abstract

Monkeypox, a zoonotic orthopoxvirus, unintentionally produces smallpox-like sickness in people, though with a far lower death rate. This virus is clinically noteworthy because it is native to western and central Africa and that outbreaks in the Western Hemisphere have been connected to the exotic pet trade and international travel. The monkeypox virus (MPV) was first isolated and identified in 1958 when sick monkeys were sent from Singapore to a research facility in Denmark. However, the first known human case of the virus was discovered in a toddler in the Democratic Republic of the Congo in 1970 who was believed to have smallpox. Vaccination against vaccinia coincidentally protected against the monkeypox virus before the eradication of smallpox and the subsequent absence of immunization attempts; nonetheless, monkeypox gained therapeutic relevance [1].
