Postvaricella Suppurative MeningitisCase Reports and Review of the Literature

Am J Dis Child. 1979;133(9):934-935. doi:10.1001/archpedi.1979.02130090062011
Abstract

• Suppurative meningitis should be recognized as being a complication of varicella. The clinician must assiduously exclude suppurative meningitis that at times may be clinically indistinguishable from the typical postinfectious encephalomyelitis of varicella. Misdiagnosis of the cause of CNS alterations during the course of varicella is possible.
