Disease relevance of Chickenpox


Psychiatry related information on Chickenpox


High impact information on Chickenpox

  • More on continuous-infusion acyclovir for severe varicella [8].
  • The disease, which responds to tetracycline, can be mistaken for chickenpox [9].
  • Using the polymerase chain reaction, we performed postmortem examinations of trigeminal and thoracic ganglia of 23 subjects 33 to 88 years old who had not recently had chickenpox or shingles to identify the presence of latent varicella-zoster viral DNA [10].
  • DESIGN, SETTING, AND SUBJECTS: Active surveillance for varicella conducted among the populations of Antelope Valley, Calif; Travis County, Tex; and West Philadelphia, Pa; from January 1, 1995, to December 31, 2000 [11].
  • Adenosine monophosphate for the treatment of varicella zoster infections: a large dose of caution [12].
