Thrombocytopenia, a decrease in the number of blood platelets, can be observed in many varied conditions. It is a frequent finding in patients with leukemia, severe anemia, and blood dyscrasias due to drug sensitivity. Thrombocytopenia also accompanies the onset of a variety of infections, and during the convalescent period following viral diseases. We report a case of varicella zoster virus-associated thrombocytopenia in an adult following disseminated herpes zoster.
