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, in this photograph from the World Health Organization (WHO), was the face, back, feet and hands of a young boy, who had sustained the ravages of the characteristic maculopapular monkeypox cutaneous rash, which is very similar in its appearance to the rash caused by the smallpox virus.
