In this presentation, the epidemiology of monkeypox virus will be discussed, including a review of prior outbreaks and key routes of transmission. In addition, the clinical features of monkeypox virus disease will be highlighted, with emphasis on how the variety in disease manifestations may contribute to ongoing transmission. Finally, participants will learn about the laboratory methods that should be used to help establish a diagnosis of monkeypox virus infection.
