Human Monkeypox in Sierra Leone after 44-Year Absence of Reported Cases.Emerg Infect Dis. 2019 05; 25(5):1023-1025.EI
We note the reemergence of human monkeypox in Sierra Leone following a 44-year absence of reported disease. The persons affected were an 11-month-old boy and, several years later, a 35-year-old man. The reappearance of monkeypox in this country suggests a need for renewed vigilance and awareness of the disease and its manifestations.
