Pediatric kidney transplantation part 79

Children

 

If your child has chickenpox after transplant, will their symptoms be more severe?

In general, even in a transplant patient, chickenpox usually causes the same  signs and symptoms that we see in other children, mostly the fever and the skin rash.

Rarely, chickenpox can affect other body organs in a transplant patient and a potentially can make the patient very sick and on rare occations even cause them to die.

If your child develops spots  that you think may be chickenpox, please see your family doctor or pediatrician or call the kidney transplant team. Your child may need to receive anti viral medication either by mouth or IV. If there are signs that the chickenpox rash quite severe or if the virus appears  to be affecting other organs, your child may need to be treated in hospital,
