Sažetak

 

Varičela infekcija je infektivna zarazna bolest koja najčešće prolazi bez komplikacija. Međutim, kod oko 2% dece sa varičelom moguća je pojava komplikacija, najčešće u vidu bakterijske superinfekcije. Tok i prognoza zavise od uzrasta deteta, lokalizacije i imunološkog statusa. Prikazujemo slučaj dvogodišnjeg dečaka sa flegmonom vrata nastalog kao komplikacija varičele.

 

 

 

Ključne reči:

varičela, flegmona, nekrotizirajući fasciitis, vrat

 

 

Abstract

 

Varicella infection usually passes without complications. However, about 2% of children who suffer from Varicella may experience complications, most often in the form of bacterial superinfection. Course and prognosis of the disease depend on the age of the child, localization and immune status. We present the case of a two-year-old boy who developed phlegmon of the neck as complication of Varicella infection.

 

 

Key words:

varicella, phlegmon, necrotizing fasciitis, neck region
