  Varicella Zoster Virus (VZV) causes two distinct clinical entities, varicella that is an acute and generally benign illness in children resulting from primary infection with VZV, and zoster which results from reactivation of latent VZV and usually occurs in adults. Zoster is uncommon before 10 years of age. Occurrence of herpes zoster during varicella infection is exceptional. Here, I report an unusual and rare case of herpes zoster that occurred during varicella in a healthy 10-year-old child.
