The case of a previously healthy child who developed progressive systemic varicella with purpura is reported. The clinical course of this patient is outlined, and the range of potential complications of chickenpox in children is reviewed. Familiarity with the usual uncomplicated natural history of primary varicella infection should alert the clinician to signs and symptoms that signal significant systemic involvement.
