  • Biomarkers
  • Information


Monkeypox is a viral disease caused by the Monkeypox virus, a member of the Orthopoxvirus genus in the family Poxviridae. It's similar to smallpox but typically milder. The disease was first identified in monkeys, hence its name, but rodents are considered the primary natural reservoir. Monkeypox primarily occurs in central and west Africa, but has seen outbreaks in other parts of the world. 

The primary symptoms include fever, headache, muscle aches, backache, swollen lymph nodes, chills, exhaustion, and a distinctive rash that often begins on the face before spreading to other parts of the body. 

In a swab test for Monkeypox, a sample is collected typically from a lesion or rash. This sample is then tested in a laboratory to detect the presence of Monkeypox virus DNA. The most common method used for this testing is Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), which is highly sensitive and can detect even small amounts of viral DNA. PCR amplifies specific DNA sequences of the Monkeypox virus, allowing for accurate identification of the virus in the sample.


Symptoms of Monkeypox typically include:

  • Fever
  • Headache
  • Muscle aches
  • Backache
  • Swollen lymph nodes
  • Chills
  • Exhaustion
  • Rash (starting on the face, then spreading)
  • Respiratory symptoms (e.g., sore throat, nasal congestion, cough)

Additional Information

Additional Insight from Dr Sameer Nakedar, MBBS, MRCGP, PGCert

As a doctor, I emphasize that timely detection of Monkeypox is crucial. Ideally, testing should be conducted when the characteristic rash appears, usually about 5 to 7 days post-symptom onset, to ensure accuracy and prompt intervention.
