major smallpox criteria
MAJOR Smallpox Criteria
  • FEBRILE PRODROME: occurring 1-4 days before rash onset: fever > 101°F and at least one of the following: prostration, headache, backache, chills, vomiting, or severe abdominal pain
major smallpox criteria continued
MAJOR Smallpox Criteria(Continued)
  • CLASSIC SMALLPOX LESIONS: Deep-seated, firm, hard, round well-circumscribed vesicles or pustules; as they evolve lesions may become umbilicated or confluent
major smallpox criteria continued4
MAJOR Smallpox Criteria(Continued)
  • LESIONS IN THE SAME STAGE OF DEVELOPMENT: on any one part of the body (e.g., the face or arm) all the lesions are in the same stage of development (i.e. all are vesicles, or all are pustules)
minor smallpox criteria
MINOR Smallpox Criteria
  • Centrifugal distribution: greatest concentration of lesions on face and distal extremities
  • First lesions on the oral mucosa/palate, face, or forearms
minor smallpox criteria continued
MINOR Smallpox Criteria(Continued)
  • Patient appears toxic or moribund
  • Slow evolution: lesions evolve from macules’ papules’ pustules over days (each stage lasts 1-2 days)
  • Lesions on the palms and soles

Differentiating Chickenpox from SmallpoxChickenpox (varicella) is the condition most likely to be confused with smallpox. In Chickenpox:
  • No or mild prodrome
  • Lesions are superficial vesicles: “dewdrop on a rose petal”
  • Lesions appear in crops; on any one part of the body there are lesions in different stages (papules, vesicles, crusts)
differentiating chickenpox from smallpox continued
Differentiating Chickenpox from Smallpox (Continued):
  • Centripetal distribution: greatest concentration of lesions on the trunk, fewest lesions on distal extremities. May involve the face and/or scalp. Occasionally entire body equally affected.
  • First lesions appear on the face or trunk
  • Patients rarely toxic or moribund
differentiating chickenpox from smallpox continued9
Differentiating Chickenpox from Smallpox (Continued):
  • Rapid evolution: lesions evolve from macules ’papules ’vesicles ’crusts quickly (<24 hours)
  • Palms and soles rarely involved
  • Patient lacks reliable history of varicella or varicella vaccination
  • 50-80% recall an exposure to chickenpox or shingles 10-21 days before rash onset
common conditions that might be confused with smallpox
Common Conditions that Might Be Confused with Smallpox
  • Varicella (primary infection with varicella- zoster virus): Most common in children < 10 years; children usually do not have viral prodrome
  • Disseminated herpes zoster: Immunocompromised or elderly persons; rash looks like varicella, usually begins in dermatomal distribution
common conditions that might be confused with smallpox continued
Common Conditions that Might Be Confused with Smallpox (Continued)
  • Impetigo (Streptococcus pyogenes, Staphylococcus aureus): Honey-colored crusted plaques with bullae are classic but may begin as vesicles; regional not disseminated rash; patients generally not ill
  • Drug eruptions: Exposure to medications; rash often generalized
common conditions that might be confused with smallpox continued13
Common Conditions thatMight Be Confused with Smallpox (Continued)
  • Contact dermatitis: Itching;contact with possible allergens; rash often localized in pattern suggesting external contact
  • Erythema multiforme minor: Target, “bull’s eye,” or iris lesions; often follows recurrent herpes simplex virus infections; may involve hands and feet (including palms and soles)
common conditions that might be confused with smallpox continued14
Common Conditions thatMight Be Confused with Smallpox (Continued)
  • Erythema multiforme (including Stevens Johnson Syndrome): Major form involves mucous membranes and conjunctivae;may be target lesions or vesicles
  • Enteroviral infection, esp. Hand, Foot and Mouth disease: Summer and fall; fever and mild pharyngitis 1-2 days before rash onset; lesions initially maculopapular but evolve into whitish-gray tender, flat often oval vesicles; peripheral distribution (hands, feet and mouth or disseminated)
common conditions that might be confused with smallpox continued15
Common Conditions thatMight Be Confused with Smallpox (Continued)
  • Disseminated herpes simplex: Lesions indistinguishable from varicella; immunocompromised host
  • Scabies; insect bites (including fleas): Itching is a major symptom; patient is not febrile and is otherwise well
  • Molluscum contagiosum: May disseminate in immunocompromised persons
