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.
