Safety Precautions For Using Vaccinia

Vaccinia virus is not to be confused either with variola virus, another member of the Orthopoxvirus genus that caused smallpox prior to its eradication, or with varicella virus, a herpes virus that causes chicken pox. Until 1972, vaccinia virus was routinely used in the United States as a live vaccine to prevent smallpox, and a residual scar, commonly on the upper arm, is evidence of that vaccination.

Diagnostic Assays For Evaluation Of Infant And Mother

As mentioned in the preceding section, it is possible to make a diagnosis of VZV infection by laboratory means if the illness seems atypical. Usually, however, the clinical presentation is characteristic enough to make laboratory confirmation of chickenpox or zoster unnecessary. PCR is the best means for documenting the congenital varicella syndrome (7). This might be performed on a skin biopsy of an affected area or cerebrebrospinal fluid. It is also possible to detect VZV antigens when children thought to have this syndrome develop zoster (7). Some of these infants may develop very mild manifestations of zoster, consisting of only a few vesicular lesions. Laboratory confirmation of VZV infection may be very useful in such situations. 2.

Discharge And Home Healthcare Guidelines

I I erpes zoster, also known as shingles, is a common viral skin eruption that is estimated to affect 300,000 to 500,000 persons a year in the United States. Approximately 95 of adults in the United States have antibodies to the varicella zoster virus (VZV), which means they have been exposed to it. The virus causes acute unilateral inflammation of a dorsal root ganglion. Each nerve innervates a particular skin area on the body called a dermatome, which bends around the body in a pattern that has been mapped corresponding to the vertebral source. Generally, herpes zoster eruptions occur in the thoracic region and, less commonly, affect a single cervical, facial (trigeminal nerve), lumbar, or sacral ganglion.

Gender Ethnicracial And Life Span Considerations

Herpes zoster can occur at any age and in both genders, although it is uncommon in healthy children or young adults. Prevalence doubles in patients over the age of 50, and approximately 80 of all cases occur in people older than 20 years. It is hypothesized that 50 of all people who live to the age of 85 will have an attack and that 10 may suffer from more than one occurrence. Of those people who have been exposed to chickenpox, African Americans are 25 less likely than whites to develop herpes zoster.

Elevated Eosinophil and Basophil Counts

Reactive Bronchial Cells

Elevation of segmented basophils to more than 2-3 or 150 1 is rare and, in accordance with their physiological role in the immune system regulation, is seen inconsistently in allergic reactions to food, drugs, or parasites (especially filariae and schistosomes), i.e., usually in conditions in which eosinophilia is also seen. Infectious diseases that may show basophilia are tuberculosis and chickenpox metabolic diseases where basophilia may occur are myxedema and hyperlipidemia. Au-tonomic proliferations of basophils are part of the myeloproliferative

Studies in MS and Other Conditions

An interesting example of the influence of meditation on immune function was described in a 1985 report (2). A woman experienced in an Eastern religious-type of meditation was given small skin injections of a component of the chickenpox virus. Because she had been exposed to the virus previously, she had, as expected, an immune response to the injection that involved inflammation and redness of skin. Subsequently, she was told to use her meditation skills to attempt to decrease the injection response for a 3-week period. For each week during that time, her skin reaction was reduced, and the activity of her immune cells was decreased.

Herpes Zoster Shingles

Etiology Varicella zoster virus (VZV) causes chickenpox after primary infection, VZV remains dormant in sensory nerve roots for life, and reactivation results in herpes zoster (shingles). Reactivation may be idiopathic, but may occur with immunosuppression or stress. Increased incidence with increasing age more common in HIV & hematologic malignancy. Investigations Diagnosis is mostly clinical if unsure, same work-up as for chickenpox and biopsy can be helpful.

Herpes and Varicella Zoster

Dermis Multinucleated Cells Neutrophils

INTRODUCTION Herpes zoster (shingles) and varicella zoster (chickenpox) are both systemic infections with manifestations caused by herpes virus varicellae. The virus is an obligate human parasite requiring person-to-person transmission for its survival. Varicella most commonly occurs in children and is almost always a mild, self-limited disease however, when the disease occurs in adults it is often a much more severe process. Zoster, meaning belt or girdle in Greek, is felt to be a reactivation of a previous varicella infection within a single dermatome. Herpes zoster is most prevalent in middle to late adulthood however, it can occur in children and rarely even in infants, in whom it is usually a mild disease. Eyelid symptoms result from involvement of the first or ophthalmic division of the trigeminal (5th cranial) nerve and are seen in up to 10 of cases of zoster infections. Adults with herpes zoster are contagious during the early stages and often transmit the virus to susceptible...

Clinical Features

Specific skin lesions of AMoL and AMMoL present as violaceous to red-brown papules, nodules, and plaques (Figs. 1 and 2) (4,5,8). They are most commonly located on the trunk and extremities, but they can occur anywhere in either a grouped or a generalized pattern. Occasionally, a solitary red, sometimes, necrotic or ulcerated, nodule is found. The eruption may also involve the face and scalp. Mucocutaneous leukemic infiltrates were found in 24 of 81 patients with AMMoL (6). Leukemic gingival hyperplasia is a striking feature of AMoL and AMMoL. The infiltrated gingiva appear swollen, glazed, firm in consistency, and bright red to deep purple in color (6,8). The gums may completely cover the teeth. Deep oral ulcerations may occur in areas subjected to trauma such as the hard palate and tongue (Fig. 3). Specific skin lesions tend to localize at sites of trauma, burns, herpes zoster scars, and catheter placement (3,4,9). Unusual manifestations of AMoL and AMMoL include hemorrhagic bulla...

Itp Introduction

Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) is an acquired hemorrhagic blood disorder. It is characterized by excessive destruction of platelets (thrombocytopenia) and purpura (a discoloration caused by petechiae beneath the skin). Etiology is unknown but it is believed to be an autoimmune response to disease-related antigens. ITP is classified into two forms 1) acute form, which arises usually after an upper respiratory infection, measles, mumps, or chickenpox and 2) chronic form, which is unresponsive to treatment (with persistent thrombocytopenia) beyond 6 months of diagnosis. Classic signs and symptoms of ITP may include easy bruising with petechiae, and or ecchymosis over bony prominences bleeding from mucous membranes (i.e., epistaxis, bleeding gums) hematuria hematemesis hemarthrosis hematomas over the lower extremities. ITP is seen most frequently between the ages of 2 and 10 years in children. It is rarely seen in infants less than 6 months of age. Treatment is primarily...

Postherpetic Neuralgia

This is a common and severe form of neuropathic pain in the elderly, caused by reactivation of the varicella zoster virus, usually a childhood infection. The incidence of postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) after herpes zoster varies between 9 and 15 , with 35-55 of patients continuing to have pain three months later, and 30 having intractable pain for one year. The dermatomal distribution and frequencies of PHN are as follows.

Description Medical Coagulation Disorders

Acute ITP is thought to be a response to a viral infection. Generally, a viral infection, such as rubella or chickenpox, occurs 2 to 21 days before the onset of the disease. Acute ITP may occur after live vaccine immunizations and is most prevalent during the winter and spring months when the incidence of infection is high. It is also associated with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Chronic ITP generally has no underlying viral association and is often linked to immuno-logic disorders, such as lupus erythematosus, or to drug reactions. HISTORY. Ask if the patient has recently had rubella or chickenpox or a viral infection with symptoms such as upper respiratory or gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms. Ask if the patient was recently immunized with a live vaccine. Check for a history of systemic lupus erythematosus easy bruising or bleeding from the nose, gums, or GI or urinary tract. Because the symptoms of chronic ITP are usually insidious, patients may not have noticed an increase in...

Risk Of Maternal Infection During Pregnancy

Shingles Transmission Period

In the prevaccine era in the United States, it was estimated that there were 240-2400 annual cases of varicella in pregnant women (7). This is only an estimate because varicella is not a reportable disease nationally. The usual scenario is that if a pregnant woman contracts varicella, it is usually transmitted from her children, who were exposed to other children with chickenpox at school or day care. In the prevaccine era, the annual rate of varicella in children under the age of 10 years was 10 per year. Varicella is highly contagious, with an attack rate approaching 90 following a household exposure to the illness. Because varicella is so contagious in families, it makes the likelihood of contracting varicella for a susceptible woman with a young child attending school on the order of 5 during her pregnancy. The literature is replete with cases of severe varicella in pregnant women that proved fatal or near-fatal. Varicella is estimated to be 25 times more likely to be severe in...


A chickenpox (varicella) vaccine is now available for children and for adults who never contracted the disease in childhood. Chickenpox is a very contagious disease that causes only fever and an itchy rash in children. Although rare in adults, chickenpox can be much more serious when contracted in adulthood, causing sterility in men. Ask your doctor if he or she recommends that you get immunized for chickenpox. The vaccine is given in two doses, the second dose 1 to 2 months after the first.

Clinical notes

The trigeminal ganglion, as any sensory ganglion, may be the site of infection by the herpes zoster virus causing shingles, a painful vesicular eruption in the sensory distribution of the nerve. The virus may have been latent in the ganglion following chickenpox (varicella).

Reyes Syndrome

Reye Syndrome Rash

Reyes syndrome is an entity of unknown etiology affecting children, in which an upper respiratory tract infection, chicken pox, and, rarely, gastroenteritis are followed by vomiting, convulsion, coma, hypoglycemia, elevated blood ammonia, and abnormal serum transaminase values. Individuals dying of the entity show fatty metamorphosis of the liver, with multiple small fatty cyto-plasmic vesicles in the hepatocytes, myocardial fibers, and tubular cells of the kidneys. These are extremely fine vesicles compared with the coarse deposit seen in alcoholic fatty metamorphosis of the liver. Reyes syndrome can be confused with inborn errors of metabolism with which it may share many of the same clinical characteristics. The only way to be absolutely sure of the diagnosis is to demonstrate specific mitochondrial changes in liver tissue. An increased incidence of this syndrome was noted in children who had taken aspirin for flu-like illnesses or chicken pox. Because of this, the use of aspirin...

Immune System

The immune system has several remarkable characteristics. When working properly, it can distinguish between the body's own cells and those that come from outside of the body. It also can remember previous exposures to certain microorganisms. For example, if you have had chickenpox, you usually will not develop it again because your immune system knows that you have already been exposed and will respond even more aggressively to that virus. Not only can the immune system recognize millions of different invading microorganisms, it also can produce specific molecules to fight each one. The success of the immune system depends on an elaborate system of communication and checks and balances that quickly pass information back and forth along pathways.


Microbiology Variola minor is a highly contagious DNA pox virus, related to chicken pox and monkey pox. Differential diagnosis Chickenpox has a characteristic centripetal rash with asynchronously developing and resolving red macules, vesicles, pustules, ulcers, crusts, scabs, and shallow scars, most marked on the neck and trunk. Diagnosis Viral culture, antigen detection by ELISA and PCR.


Varicella zoster virus (VZV) - The virus causes chickenpox (varicella) in childhood, becomes latent in the dorsal root ganglia, and reactivates decades later to produce shingles (zoster) in adults. Subacute encephalitis develops against a background of cancer, immunosuppression, and AIDS, and death is common

Infective stomatitis

Ballooning Degeneration Herpes

Aetiology Reactivation of varicella-zoster infection, usually in the elderly long after the initial infection (chickenpox). The condition is especially common and severe in immunodeficiencies life-threatening in AIDS. Acyclovir is an effective anti-herpetic drug, but must be given in heavy dosage, especially to immunodeficient patients, and preferably intravenously.

Viral Infections

Herpes zoster (shingles) is caused by a reactivation of the varicellar-zoster virus which causes childhood chickenpox. Following an attack of chickenpox, the virus may remain dormant in a sensory root ganglion and may become reactivated at a later date, often many years later. Shingles is more common in the elderly, those with lymphoma, AIDS, or other causes of immunosuppression. The attacks often start with unilateral paresthesiae or pain and there may be accompanying systemic upset and fever. Vesicular lesions similar to those seen in varicella (chickenpox) develop within the course of the cutaneous nerve. Approximately 25 of patients develop a distressing postherpetic neuralgia that may persist for months, or sometimes years, after the rash has settled. Although topical therapy has little role in treating acute herpes zoster, topical antiseptics, such as Betadine paint may prevent secondary bacterial infection. Recently, a counterirritant cream containing capsaicin at a...
