Histological findings at autopsy (a, c hematoxylin–eosin staining; b, d immunostaining with anti-VZV antibody). a, b All of the epidermis, dermis and interstitial tissue of the skin showed positive immunostaining with anti-VZV antibody. Intranuclear inclusion bodies were also identified. a Hematoxylin–eosin staining; b immunostaining with anti-VZV antibody. Magnification × 40. c, d Most of the necrotic hepatic tissue and the remaining normal areas were positively immunostained with the anti-VZV antibody, except for the bile ducts (black arrow). Intranuclear inclusion bodies were identified (white arrow). a Hematoxylin–eosin staining; b immunostaining with anti-VZV antibody. Magnification × 40
