Comparison of Tanapox virus and Yaba-like viruses causing epidemic disease in monkeys

  • Published online: 01 May 2009

The virus of Tanapox isolated from the lesions of patients during an outbreak of mild disease in Africa has been found to be indistinguishable in its biological and serological properties from a virus isolated from outbreaks of a pox virus infection in monkeys in primate centres in America. The natural hosts of this virus are believed to be African monkeys and ‘Tanapox virus’ is proposed as a suitable designation for the virus.
