Résumé : Varicella in a newborn with scarring cutaneous lesions and symptoms of neurological damage occurred following maternal varicella at the 14th-19th wk of pregnancy. A high titer of complement fixing antibodies to varicella virus was found at birth, decreasing to a low level at 6 mth of age and then increasing. Neutralizing antibodies to herpes simplex viruses types I and II were not present. Electron microscopy demonstrated viral particles of the herpes group in the fluid of a zoster vesicle in the 10th wk of life. Neuromotor disturbances affecting deglutition resulted in recurring aspiration pneumonia, malnutrition, marasmus and death.
