Definitions of WHITEPOX
Sort: Oldest first
A disease resembling varioloid, but apparently distinct from it, occurring alike in the vaccinated and the unvaccinated; the symptoms are those of smallpox, but usually mild; the eruption is often profuse, even confluent, on the face, but leaves no permanent scarring; ordinary vaccination will not take until about six months after an attack of whitepox. The disease is found chiefly on the west coast of Africa and in Brazil.
