Thirteen children with human immunodeficiency virus infection acquired perinatally and with varicella were identified. Clinical and epidemiologic information, including the use of varicella immune globulin and acyclovir, was obtained and testing for antibodies to varicella-zoster virus was done. The 13 children infected with human immunodeficiency virus had an uncomplicated clinical course, and many had a significant antibody response to varicella-zoster virus. (J PEDIATR 1994;124:271-3).
