Mpox resource center
The Academy has assembled resources on mpox (monkeypox), including guidance on recognizing mpox infection, resources on treatment and pain, and an mpox registry to gather information on dermatologic manifestations of the disease. An Ad Hoc Task Force to Develop Mpox Content was appointed to monitor developments and create relevant guidance for dermatologists. That guidance is provided below.
