For the reason you mention, how did you confirm the diagnosis of varicella?
Was it on clinical grounds or serology? Conventional wisdom is that maternal
antibodies (if present) are generally protective until 6 months or so..
Thanks in advance
We recently saw a 3 month old who not only had chickenpox but also a
superinfection. Do any of you have much experience with this age group and
chickenpox, perhaps a similar case and do you have a good reference article?
