Monkeypox lesions are first macular, then papular, then vesicular, pustular, and then crust, with 1-2 days between stages. The lesions are often painful, and lymphadenopathy is frequently present. Notably, the rash can occur on the hands and appear firm, vesicular and umbilicated. A flu-like illness often precedes the rash. Several recent cases had lesions in the genital and perianal areas, some without a preceding illness. The incubation period is usually 7-14 days, and illnesses typically last 2-4 weeks. In Africa, the case fatality rates have been reported to be 1-11%. There is currently no specific treatment for monkeypox, but particularly in the outbreak setting, postexposure smallpox vaccine and antivirals may be considered after consultation with public health.
