Abstract

Summary: A 38-year old immunocompetent male presented to us with chicken pox complicated by development of Guillain-Barre syndrome (GBS) and left-sided native valve endocarditis due to methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). This was further complicated by embolization to various vital organs including the brain. The patient was treated with vancomycin for four weeks but did not respond to the treatment. We present this case to highlight the rare complications associated with chicken pox and the challenges faced in management of such a case.
