|Abstract:||An adult patient presented with vesicular rash and abdominal pain of 5 days duration. His initial laboratory results showed elevated liver enzymes. A contrast enhanced CT scan demonstrated multiple small hypodense nodules in liver and spleen. His serum was reactive for Varicella Zoster IgM. Patient was treated with intravenous Acyclovir for 5 days and followed up with oral tablets for 2 weeks. At 3 weeks, CT scan showed resolution of hypodense nodules and his serum liver enzymes returned to normal at 6 weeks. Patient is on follow up and asymptomatic for 2 years. The CT appearances of nodules and their resolution following specific antiviral therapy are useful in diagnosis and in follow up of disseminated Varicella Zoster. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.
