An inguinal and perianal localization of Fournier's gangrene (FG) in a 15-month-old boy as a complication of the varicella infection is discussed. This is the first presentation of the disease as a complication of the varicella rashes. There were already 57 pediatric FG cases resulting from other causes that had been presented in the medical literature.
