This 1968 image depicted a posterior view of a hospitalized man's neck, back and shoulders, who’d been assigned a bed in a smallpox ward, due to an initially misdiagnosed illness, which turned out to be chickenpox. Smallpox is caused by the variola virus, while chickenpox is caused by the varicella zoster virus (VZV), also known as Human herpesvirus 3 (HHV-3).
