Hemorrhagic varicella is a serious complication of a relatively benign disorder and usually occurs in immunocompromised persons and those on immunosuppressive therapy. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first case report of hemorrhagic varicella associated with chronic liver disease in Indian literature. Our encounter with this case highlights that rare hemorrhagic varicella can also present in cases of chronic liver disease. Prompt diagnosis and treatment with acyclovir leads to complete recovery.
