Abstract

: Varicella zoster infection is a common disease in young children that usually resolves without severe complications. However, when it occurs in adults, certain rare life-threatening complications can develop. The authors describe varicella infection in an adult complicated by rhabdomyolysis demonstrated by bone scan. Early identification of rhabdomyolysis by bone scan can allow aggressive fluid and antiviral therapy in this setting.
