ABSTRACT

Since May 2022, the number of monkeypox virus infections has sharply increased in countries where the disease has not been previously endemic. At present, most reports refer to low-severity cases. Herein, we present a severe case of the disease with disseminated skin lesions that progressed to death in an immunosuppressed patient in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil.
