Monkeypox symptoms in patients attending London clinics diff
The first study on 54 cases in the current UK monkeypox outbreak reports important differences in patient's symptoms to those observed in previous outbreaks elsewhere in the world. The findings suggest that patients in this cohort had a higher prevalence of skin lesions in the genital and anal area and lower prevalence of tiredness and fever than in cases from previously studied outbreaks of monkeypox. Based on this study's findings, the authors suggest current case definitions for "probable cases" of monkeypox should be reviewed to help identify cases.
