Abstract

The diagnosis of repeated pulmonary emboli was made for a 32-year-old man with chickenpox pneumonia. This case and previously reported cases emphasize that upon recognition, the treatment of pulmonary emboli occurring with chickenpox pneumonia may be the only specific therapy which can be offered to these often critically ill patients.
