Student’s Name: Professor’s Name: Course: Date: The Mechanism and Diagnosis of Varicella Zoster Varicella-zoster is a virus that transmits a disease to the human beings and belongs to the large subfamily of alphaherpesvirus of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) virus. The virus causes both the zoster (shingles) and varicella (chickenpox). The viruses mainly target and contaminate the sensory ganglia subsequently resulting in the development of a mode of reactivation from latency causing the herpes zoster disease. Mutually the electron microscopy and multi-scale comparative immunofluorescence were engaged in the evaluation of the VZV’s replication conducted in mice concerning the human being dorsal root cyst. From the experiment the satellite and the neuron cells located inside the DRG contain the existence of the viral proteins virion production and the genomic DNA (Gershon et al. 8). Additionally in the process of the replication of VZV in the human body the formation of polykaryon between older and have no history of chickenpox infection in their life. Hygiene is a crucial strategy for the overall management of varicella and avoiding secondary infection. Another useful technique of controlling varicella is the isolation of patients until the last lesions crusted. Works Cited Gershon Anne A. et al. "Varicella Zoster Virus Infection."

The mechanism of disease and diagnosis. This includes items such as the portal of entry , virulence factors and how they work, any toxins produced and what they do,what happens to the host as a result of these virulence factors and / or toxins, and how is an infection with this organism diagnosed? what are the signs and symptoms? what happens if this infection is not treated? Treatments need not covered under this topic.
