Abstract Exacerbation of viral exanthema has been described after different types of aggression. We report a case of enhanced chickenpox exanthema occurring in the vaccination site of an otherwise healthy boy. Specific local inflammatory modifications may explain the increased number of varicella skin lesions on the site of a previous vaccine-induced inflammation.
