Abstract

Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is caused by the Molluscum contagiosum virus (MCV), genus Molluscipoxvirus, is a member of Pox virus family confined to human and monkey . The virus can be cultured on both human epidermis and amniotic epithelium. The initial lesion is a 1-2 mm centrally umblicated papule. In association with HIV- AIDS irrespective of the age of the patient, these small papules become canon ball like, sometimes even 5 cm in diameter, occasionally found hanging from a pedicle on the face. This is generally taken as a diagnostic factor without warranting any serological evidence. The biopsy of the Molluscum shows characteristic Henderson-Peterson Molluscum bodies. These are the tiny elementary bodies within the Molluscum and known to be transmitting the disease once the papule has been opened.
