Typical chicken pox presented with arthritis in the left knee in a 5-year-old girl. Attempts to isolate bacteria, Mycoplasma, and viruses were unsuccessful. The arthritis subsided promptly and long term follow-up has failed to yield evidence of other disease. Varicella virus infection may be the cause of the arthritis.
