Involvement of the gastrointestinal tract is rare in varicella. We report a previously healthy young girl with perforation of the stomach that appeared to be a complication of varicella. Varicella inclusion bodies were demonstrated at the site of gastric perforations. On surgery, an organoaxial volvulus of the stomach was demonstrated.
