Disease Ontology:8 A viral infectious disease that results in infection located in skin, has material basis in molluscum contagiosum virus, which is transmitted by contact with the skin, and transmitted by fomites. the infection has symptom lesions which are flesh-colored with a pit in the center.

MalaCards: Molluscum Contagiosum is related to atopic dermatitis and dermatitis, and has symptoms including lesions which are flesh-colored An important gene associated with Molluscum Contagiosum is LOR (loricrin), and among its related pathways are Nucleotide-binding domain, leucine rich repeat containing receptor (NLR) signaling pathways and Legionellosis. The drug cantharidin and the compounds hematoxylin and infliximab have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, skin and t cells, and related mouse phenotypes are integument and hematopoietic system.
