Varicella-zoster-infektion kompliceret med bakteriel pneumoni hos barn

Benjamin Ole Wolthers, Ebbe Thiested, Anette F Gyhrs


This case report describes how a three-year-old girl referred to our paediatric ward, infected with varicella-zoster virus and a bacterial pneumonia causing atelectasis. The girl did not respond to initial treatment with intravenous antibiotics. Only after a lung drain was inserted she gradually recovered. We briefly describe the incidence of bacterial pneumonia as a complication to varicella-zoster virus and raise the question whether to vaccinate against varicella-zoster virus.
