Cutaneous Herpes Zoster

Subsequent reactivation of latent varicellazoster virus in dorsal-root ganglia results in a localized cutaneous eruption termed herpes zoster (or shingles). Disseminated cutaneous herpes zoster in healthy persons is uncommon, though it has been described in immunocompromised patients.

Cutaneous herpes zoster is a benign, localized painful skin lesion, more common in the elderly and immunocompromised population across the globe. ABSTRACT Cutaneous herpes zoster is a benign, localized painful skin lesion, more common in the elderly and immunocompromised population across the globe. Herpes zoster, also known as zoster and shingles, is caused by the reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus (VZV) , the same virus that causes varicella (chickenpox).

Cutaneous Herpes Zoster

Herein, we report a case of disseminated cutaneous herpes zoster in an immunocompetent patient along with a review and analysis of 28 cases previously reported in the literature. There are no comparative data on the treatment duration of cutaneous herpes zoster (HZ) in patients with HIV infection. We retrospectively reviewed all 51 adult patients with HIV infection presenting with cutaneous HZ in the 15-year period 19952009 treated with intravenous aciclovir alone.

We report an unusual clinical presentation of disseminated cutaneous herpes zoster in immunocompetent infant without history of chickenpox but with positive history of maternal varicella during pregnancy. Herpes zoster is an infection resulting from reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus (VZV) that affects peripheral or cranial nerves and usually occurs years after primary infection with the varicella (chickenpox) virus or receipt of the live, attenuated varicella vaccine. The disease manifests as painful cutaneous eruptions over a single dermatome or two or more contiguous dermatomes; they are invariably unilateral and do not cross the midline. We describe the development of prolonged disseminated cutaneous herpes zoster in two patients with acquired immunodeficiency syndrome. Granulomatous vasculitis occurring after cutaneous herpes zoster despite absence of viral genome. Granuloma annulare, sarcoidal and other granulomatous dermatitides, pseudolymphoma, lymphoplasmacytoid lymphoma, and Kaposi’s sarcoma have been described as sequelae of herpes zoster. Background: Herpes zoster was known to the ancient Greeks and Romans, but it was not until 1885 that von Bokey noted the association between varicella zoster virus (VZV) and shingles.

Dissemined Cutaneous Herpes Zoster In An Immunocompetent Infant

A 45-year-old woman presented with thoracic (3, 4, 5) herpes zoster with cutaneous dissemination. She was found positive for human immunodeficiency virus infection. A review of 84 patients with cutaneous leishmaniasis treated with sodium stibogluconate (Pentostam) at our institution revealed that three had developed herpes zoster during or shortly after receiving therapy. Varicella-zoster virus is a member of the herpes virus family that causes varicella during a primary infection and herpes zoster (HZ) when reactivated. Patients who are immunocompromised often have atypical presentations of HZ and experience complications such as multidermal involvement and dissemination. Reactivation of latent VZV from dorsal root ganglia results in herpes zoster (shingles) , a localized cutaneous eruption accompanied by neuralgic pain that occurs most commonly in older persons.
