I've only seen it spelled "chickenpox" as one word.

Is it a spelling variation, or one of them is a misspelling?

According to the dictionary on my computer, either is OK.
Also, googling shows both being used.

This is Merriam-Webster's definition.

Thanks for the explanation, guys! Both of my sons had chickenpox, and the diagnosis and all the materials we were given referred to this illness as "chickenpox", so I was way to used to seeing that in one word.
