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), also known as Human herpesvirus 3 (HHV-3). 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.
