Monkeypox Virus is a rare sylvatic zoonosis caused by DNA virus, belonging to the family Poxviridae.

Transmission can occur person-to-person through close direct contact with lesions (vesicles) and mucous membranes, body fluids and even through respiratory droplets expelled into the air and fomites. The incubation period can range from 5 to 21 days. This disease is often self-limiting and symptoms usually resolve spontaneously within 5 to 21 days after onset.
