Varicella, a common exanthematous disease of childhood, can have atypical presentation in immunosuppressed patients. We report a case of a 14-year-old female who presented with multiple hemorrhagic tense bullae and a monomorphic presentation that created an initial diagnostic dilemma. Patient's treatment history was remarkable for taking methotrexate for arthritis for the last 2 months. The patient was treated with a prolonged course of intravenous acyclovir that eventually led to her uneventful recovery.
