Based on conservative figures, an estimated 60 million varicella-zoster cases occur annually worldwide, highlighting the global significance of this disease. The development of a viable varicella vaccine, therefore, raises important questions as to the indications for its use in normal children, normal seropositive and seronegative adults, and immunocompromised patients. A review of the available data addresses the potential future role of the varicella vaccine in these groups.
