VZV test: A VZV (varicella-zoster virus) test is an antibody-based laboratory test used to identify VZV in a human sample or a cultured isolate derived from a human sample (e.g. skin lesion). Human antibodies to VZV may be detected in a blood sample. VZV is the causative agent of chicken pox and a latent form of VZV is the causative agent of shingles, which is a painful skin rash that may progress to long-term pain (post-herpetic neuralgia).
