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. Pictured here, was the right arm and torso of a patient, whose skin displayed a number of lesions due to what had been an active case of monkeypox. You’ll note how this rash resembles smallpox. PHIL images 12745 through 12784 depict a full slide presentation telling the story of this investigation.
