Dully was described as a daydreamer who objected going to bed. His stepmother approached Dr. Freeman who suggested lobotomy to change his personality and behavior ("Top 10 Fascinating And Notable Lobotomies.").

aricella-zoster virus (VZV) is a ubiquitous human alpha- herpesvirus, which causes varicella (chicken pox) and herpes zoster (shingles). Varicella results from primary VZV infec- tion; it is a common childhood illness associated with fever and a generalized pruritic vesicular rash. As is characteristic of the alphaherpesviruses, VZV establishes latency in cells of the dorsal root ganglia after primary infection. Herpes zoster is a localized, painful, vesicular rash involving one or adjacent der- matomes and caused by VZV reactivation. The incidence of herpes zoster increases with age or immunosuppression.
