These two rhesus monkeys, Macaca mulatta, were perched atop a rock wall somewhere in northern India, during a 1974 trip made by Centers for Disease Control (CDC) personnel to that region. B virus infection is caused by Macacine herpesvirus 1, formerly Cercopithecine herpesvirus 1 (CHV-1), an alphaherpesvirus, closely related to herpes simplex virus. B virus is also commonly referred to as herpes B, monkey B virus, herpesvirus simiae, and herpesvirus B, and is commonly found among macaque monkeys.
