Varicella-zoster virus infection can lead to severe illness in immunocompromised patients. Further the mortality rate of disseminated varicella infection is extremely high particularly in immunocompromised children. We report a case of disseminated varicella infection in a child with acute lymphoblastic leukemia who was receiving chemotherapy, but was initially admitted with only for acute abdominal pain. The patient rapidly developed severe...

Herpes zoster is caused by the varicella-zoster virus (VZV), which affects nerve ganglions. VZV infection may be associated with neurologic complications, which are usually observed after vesicular exanthem. Acute aseptic meningitis is a rare complication of VZV reactivation. We report the case of a previously healthy 14-year-old boy who suffered from aseptic meningitis that was attributed to reactivated VZV infection...

Purpose : We evaluated the humoral and cellular immune response to varicella-zoster virus after vaccination with varicella vaccine(Oka/LG strain). Methods : The seroprevalence rate of fluorescent antibody to membrane antigen(FAMA) was evaluated among 178 children and 15 adults. After vaccination, seroconversion rate of FAMA, varicella-zoster virus(VZV) specific IgG and cell mediated immune response to glycoprotein Ⅰwas performed. Results : The seropositive rate...
