Resumen

SASTRE-LOZANO, Violeta María et al. Gastric varicella: two cases in cancer patients. Rev. esp. enferm. dig. [online]. 2016, vol.108, n.10, pp.670-672. ISSN 1130-0108.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17235/reed.2016.3925/2015.

Gastric involvement with the varicella-zoster virus is an uncommon clinical condition where early suspicion and diagnosis are important to prevent the consequences deriving from its high morbidity and mortality, which in immunocompromised patients oscillate between 9% and 41% according to the various series. Two cases of gastric involvement with the varicella-zoster virus (VZV) in two patients with blood cancer are reported below. Gastric lesions are usually preceded by typical papulovesicular skin lesions. When gastric involvement is the first symptom of the disease its diagnosis and management may be delayed, which may entail severe consequences for immunocompromised patients. It is therefore that we suggest its inclusion in the algorithm for immunocompromised patients with abdominal pain and ulcer-like endoscopic lesions.
