We present a case of reactivated herpes zoster keratouveitis of 6 years duration with corneal perforation requiring penetrating keratoplasty shortly after inoculation with herpes zoster vaccine (Zostavax, Merck, Quebec, Canada).
This article was published in the following journal.
The objective of this review was to collect reports of keratitis in association with herpes zoster virus (HZV) or varicella zoster virus (VZV) vaccines. HZV vaccination is intended for at-risk adult p...
To evaluate the long-term alterations in corneal nerves in patients with herpes simplex virus (HSV) keratitis using in vivo confocal microscopy (IVCM).
We evaluated the diagnostic usefulness of PCR for detecting varicella zoster virus (VZV) infection and reactivation of VZV using saliva and plasma VZV DNA from subjects suspected of having herpes zost...
Patients who develop herpes zoster or herpes zoster ophthalmicus may be at risk for cerebrovascular and cardiac complications. We systematically reviewed the published literature to determine the asso...
The herpes zoster subunit vaccine (HZ/su), consisting of varicella-zoster virus glycoprotein E (gE) and AS01B Adjuvant System, was highly efficacious in preventing herpes zoster in the ZOE-50 and ZOE-...
This is a multi-center, randomized, double-masked, placebo-controlled clinical trial of suppressive valacyclovir for one year in immunocompetent study participants with an episode of dendr...
As is reported, NSAIDs(pranoprofen ,bromfenac) eye drops can suppress herpes simplex virus（HSV-1） reactivation and reduce inflammatory reaction in vitro and in vivo. In Clinical, there...
Neurotrophic keratitis (NK) is a rare degenerative corneal disease caused by altered innervation of the trigeminal nerve that leads to rupture of the corneal epithelium, the regeneration d...
Infectious keratitis are favored by the circumstances causing the small trauma of the corneal epithelium, corneal surgery, corneal dryness under health system such as Sjögren's syndrome r...
Herpes zoster and post herpetic pain are common causes of morbidity in the elderly. Herpes zoster is caused by reactivation of the virus varicella zoster of latent infection in sensory gan...
Pain in nerves, frequently involving facial SKIN, resulting from the activation the latent varicella-zoster virus (HERPESVIRUS 3, HUMAN). The two forms of the condition preceding the pain are HERPES ZOSTER OTICUS; and HERPES ZOSTER OPHTHALMICUS. Following the healing of the rashes and blisters, the pain sometimes persists.
An attenuated vaccine used to prevent and/or treat HERPES ZOSTER, a disease caused by HUMAN HERPESVIRUS 3.
New blood vessels originating from the corneal veins and extending from the limbus into the adjacent CORNEAL STROMA. Neovascularization in the superficial and/or deep corneal stroma is a sequel to numerous inflammatory diseases of the ocular anterior segment, such as TRACHOMA, viral interstitial KERATITIS, microbial KERATOCONJUNCTIVITIS, and the immune response elicited by CORNEAL TRANSPLANTATION.
HERPES ZOSTER but without eruption of vesicles. Patients exhibit the characteristic pain minus the skin rash, sometimes making diagnosis difficult.
A puncture or hole through the CORNEAL STROMA resulting from various diseases or trauma.
A vaccine is a biological preparation that improves immunity to a particular disease. A vaccine typically contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, and is often made from weakened or killed forms of the microbe, its toxins or one ...
