Viremia in patients with chickenpox is reflected by the diffuse and scattered nature of the skin lesions and can be ascertained in selected cases by the recovery of varicella zoster virus from the blood. Vesicles are found in the corium and dermis, with degenerative changes characterized by ballooning, the presence of multinucleated giant cells, and eosinophilic intranuclear inclusions. Infection may also involve localized blood vessels of the skin, resulting in necrosis and epidermal hemorrhage.
