Monkeypox cases in Pakistan

Author: Dr. Ahmed Farhan     Published: 1 year ago 2 Replies

Two cases of monkeypox have been reported in Pakistan.

It manifests as:

  • A rash similar to smallpox
  • Fever, and
  • Lymphadenopathy

The diagnosis is made via PCR testing of fluid taken from the rash.

However, in an epidemic of monkeypox, the diagnosis is clinical.

Treatment is supportive but antiviral drug Tecovirimat is indicated only in severe cases, pregnant females, children younger than 1 year of age, and immunocompromised patients.

It is given in a dose of 200 mg twice daily for 14 days.

Very informative.
