This photograph depicts a close anterior view of a young girl’s right cheek, revealing the presence of a pustular lesion, which had manifested due to a case of chickenpox, an infectious disease caused by the varicella-zoster virus. This was actually a secondarily infected lesion, which had become infected, probably after the child had scratched at the primary malar pustule. The girl had presented to New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center.
