varicella (chicken pox)


Explanation:
Jeżeli chodzi o opis choroby aktualnej, to ospa wietrzna, czyli varicella, albo potocznie "chicken pox".
natomiast nie nazwałbym tej choroby "zakażeniem skóry"
Ospa (czarna), czyli smallpox nie wystepuje od ponad 30 lat

disagree  *eva*: varicella = chickenpox = ospa wietrzna; pytanie jest o ospę, poza tym varicella pojawiła się już w odpowiedzi bartek, po co dublować i denerwować?

  -> wiem o tym, ale mała szansa, żeby opisywał czarną ospę, zwłaszcz że pisze o zakażeniu skóry

smallpox - definicje:

a highly contagious viral disease characterized by fever and weakness and skin eruption with pustules that form scabs that slough off leaving scars
www.cogsci.princeton.edu/cgi-bin/webwn

Smallpox (also known by the Latin names Variola or Variola vera) is a highly contagious disease unique to humans. It is caused by two virus variants called Variola major and Variola minor. V. major is the more deadly form, with a typical mortality of 20-40 percent of those infected. The other type, V. minor, only kills 1% of its victims. Many survivors are left blind in one or both eyes from corneal ulcerations, and persistent skin scarring - pockmarks - is nearly universal.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smallpox

a highly contagious disease caused by a type of poxvirus; symptoms usually include a fever and a blistery-like rash.
