Abstract

Une forte proportion de patients ont présenté une éruption de varicelle ainsi que des signes et symptômes cliniques non typiques, soulignant les difficultés rencontrées pour identifier la varicelle dans une zone endémique pour le monkeypox. Une surveillance continue et des diagnostics de laboratoire aideront à identifier et à contrôler rapidement le monkeypox et la varicelle et à améliorer notre compréhension sur l’épidémiologie de la varicelle en Afrique.
