Varicella Virus (Chickenpox) Test

  • Chickenpox, also known as varicella, is a highly contagious disease caused by the initial infection with varicella zoster virus (VZV). The disease results in a characteristic skin rash that forms small, itchy blisters, which eventually scab over. It usually starts on the chest, back, and face. Immunization may be verified by obtaining a titer through a blood sample.
