Herpesvirus infection. Although adnexal involvement is more commonly encountered in varicella-zoster infection than in herpes simplex infection, the opposite is true for concomitant changes in appendages and in surface epidermis. Also, herpes simplex lesions are usually more inflammatory than those of varicella-zoster. Microscopic features apart, trunk is a site that favors varicella-zoster infection.
