The knowledge about the localisation of skin lesion can be a key to diagnose and to understand the underlying mechanism of many skin diseases. Two phenomena2 “isomorphic response of Koebner” and “ isotopie response” have been described in this regard. Here we report a case of varicella showing a phenomenon partially akin to both isomorphic and isotopic responses but with certain distinct variations.
