Monkeypox is a zoonosis-type disease caused by a virus of the genus Orthopoxvirus. Usually accompanied by systemic symptoms such as fever, headache, myalgia, asthenia, skin rashes or mucosal lesions. This disease is transmitted by physical contact with infected people, infected materials or animals. We present the case of a 6-year-old patient who came to primary care for symptoms compatible with clinical suspicion. Monkeypox was diagnosed under positive PCR and discharged with outpatient symptomatic management.
