Molluscipoxvirus is an enveloped virus with double-stranded DNA and belongs to the family of Poxviridae.
In humans, the virus triggers Molluscum contagiosum (MC). After the eradication of smallpox, MC is the only clinical relevant human-specific poxvirus infection (incidence 0.1 - 5 %). Severe forms with atypical symptoms have been observed in AIDS patients.
The main transmission path is direct or indirect contact with contaminated persons or objects.
