In 2022, monkeypox outbreaks were reported in nonendemic countries affecting thousands of individuals. With majority of cases in Europe, the majority of those were related to men who have sex with men (MSM) without travel history to endemic areas.1 In the United States (US), cases are rapidly increasing, and most cases are found in major metropolitan areas.1 Though there have not been any reports of outbreaks in hemodialysis centers, it is important for clinicians caring for dialysis patients to be aware of the virology, transmission, management, and prevention of the infection as an outbreak could be swift.
