Description: Caption:
The image depicted a close view of a patient’s palms, and revealed the presence of a maculopapular rash that turned out to be lesions caused by a case of chickenpox, due to the varicella zoster virus (VZV). Note that this crop of lesions appeared to be in what is referred to as the vesicular stage, in which case the lesions were fluid-filled. These would eventually mature, rupture, and liberate their highly contagious fluid contents, subsequently scabbing over to enter their crusty stage of development.
