Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Shingles rash on a 51-year-old woman's abdomen and upper torso. Shingles (herpes zoster) is caused by a reactivation of the chicken pox virus, which remains dormant in nerves after the initial infection. It can be activated for various reasons, such as a compromised or suppressed immune system. This is an immunosuppressed patient who has acute myeloid leukemia, a form of cancer that affects the immune system's white blood cells.
