JIMENEZ LOPEZ, Enrique Emilio  y  JIMENEZ LOPEZ, Edwin Emilio. Chickenpox and herpes zoster in a patient with kidney transplant. MEDISAN [online]. 2011, vol.15, n.3, pp.374-377. ISSN 1029-3019.

The clinical report of a 13 years-old adolescent with kidney transplant is described. He was readmitted ten months after the surgery due to fever, pain in the left side from the sternal margin to the thoracic spine and macular-papular injuries over erythematous base, located in the trunk, neck and face that were first spread to the lower and upper limbs, but then, while ones became into pustules and scales typical of herpes zoster, the remaining progressed as chickenpox. Treated at the appropriate time, the patient improved her general condition and she was discharged with normal kidney function to her daily environment.
