Abstract

Chickenpox is caused by a highly contagious viral infection with an airborne transmission mechanism, which is more common in children and usually has a favorable outcome. However, in some cases, this disease can lead to serious, potentially fatal complications that are more common in adults. One of the most formidable complications is pneumonia. The article describes a clinical case of a patient with chickenpox complicated by bilateral total pneumonia.
