Abstract

Varicella (chickenpox) is a common disease of childhood, caused by varicella-zoster virus. Postviral thromboembolism is a rare complication of varicella-zoster virus in childhood. We describe 2 children who developed lower limb deep venous thrombosis shortly after varicella infection, along with a review of 130 previously reported cases.
