Chicken pox is sooo yesterday

I had to translate a text about breathing apparatus today. The kind you use on people having asthma attacks rather than the diver’s kind. Not being a major expert on such matters I clearly  had no choice but to consult a medical dictionary for help. So I was flicking through it looking for some random word to do with lungs when something at the top of a page caught my eye.
Mauspox. English translation… mousepox. I wonder what the symptoms of that are? Can humans get it do you think? Maybe it causes people to take on mouse-like features.

It’s a real education this translation lark.
