Description:Caption:
This 1997 image was created during an investigation into an outbreak of monkeypox, which took place in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), formerly Zaire, and depicts the palms of a monkeypox case patient from Lodja, a city located within the Katako-Kombe Health Zone, of the DRC. It is important to note, how similar this maculopapular rash appears to be when compared to the rash of smallpox, also an Orthopoxvirus.
