Mpox: Information For Clinicians


Information for clinicians related to Mpox:

The first symptoms of mpox include fever, malaise, headache, and sometimes sore throat and cough. A distinguishing feature of mpox from smallpox is lymphadenopathy (swollen lymph nodes). This typically occurs with fever onset, 1 to 2 days before rash onset, or rarely with rash onset. Lymph nodes may swell in the neck (submandibular & cervical), armpits (axillary), or groin (inguinal) and occur on both sides of the body or just one.

Includes a section on Treatment, Preparation and Collection of Specimens, and Infection Control.
