Clinical observations from the international literature report that herpes zoster occurs after varicella vaccination in immunocompetent children. We present the case of a four-year-old immunocompetent girl who developed herpes zoster after she had received one dose of varicella-zoster virus live attenuated vaccine at the age of 15 months. Continued surveillance for herpes zoster among vaccinated persons is important to evaluate the varicella vaccination program and to detect any changes in the epidemiology ...
Herpes zoster classically presents as a vesicular eruption along a single dermatome that correlates with the dorsal root ganglion in which varicella zoster virus (VZV) reactivates. Such cases most commonly involve a single thoracic dermatome, but other rare presentations of herpes zoster have been reported including multidermatomal herpes zoster. This letter reports a case of multidermatomal herpes zoster affecting cervical dermatomes C2-C5 and presents all previously published cases of multidermatomal herp...
The recombinant adjuvanted zoster vaccine (RZV, trade name Shingrix) is preferentially recommended by the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices to prevent herpes zoster and related complications in immunocompetent adults age 50 years and older. This article reviews efficacy and safety of the vaccine, its use in special populations, and how to prevent administration errors to answer the question "Which patients should receive the herpes zoster vaccine?"
Stroke is a leading cause of death, morbidity and disability worldwide. Infection is a common complication in the acute phase after stroke. Herpes zoster is a common viral disease, in which the most debilitating complication is post-herpetic neuralgia, which can have a very large negative impact on quality of life. The aim of this study was to investigate whether stroke increases the risk of herpes zoster.
This study aimed to investigate the risk of sudden sensorineural hearing loss (SSNHL) in Herpes zoster patients from a representative population cohort. A longitudinal follow-up study Data were obtained from the Korean National Health Insurance Service-National Sample Cohort for the period from 2002 to 2013. We matched 61,702 subjects in the Herpes zoster group with subjects in a control group (246,808 subjects with no history of Herpes zoster) based on demographic factors (age, sex, income, and region of...
The features of herpes zoster share some commonalities with depression, including decreased cellular immunity, a close correlation with nutritional status, and a higher prevalence in the elderly population. We aimed to assess the association between herpes zoster infection and depression in the Korean population.We performed a longitudinal follow-up study of a nationwide sample cohort derived from the Korean National Health Insurance Service database. Individuals diagnosed with depression between 2002 and 2...
Clinical differentiation between herpes zoster and superficial skin and soft tissue infections of the face can be difficult. In addition, diagnosis can be complicated by bacterial superinfection of lesional herpes zoster. The aim of this study was to determine whether inflammatory parameters, such as C-reactive protein (CRP) and blood counts, might be reliable biomarkers to distinguish between skin and soft tissue infections and herpes zoster when the face is infected. The study data (multivariate analysis ...
To study clinical characteristics of Herpes zoster in infants.
Herpes zoster (HZ) may cause complications; however, the information regarding complications of HZ in children is relatively sparse. We retrospectively reviewed cases of HZ in children and investigated the risk factors contributing to the development of complications.
Data on the epidemiology of herpes zoster (HZ), particularly in the unvaccinated, immunocompetent population, are needed to assess disease burden and the potential impact of vaccination.
The objective of this review was to evaluate the role of diabetes as a risk factor for herpes zoster (HZ) and to discuss implications of prevention by vaccination with available HZ vaccines.
Patients with chronic inflammatory skin diseases (CISD) have potential risk factors for herpes zoster (HZ). Yet, little is known about HZ risk in CISD.
Postherpetic itch has not commonly received attention as a complication of herpes zoster because pain predominates over itch in most patients with herpes zoster. Most cases of postherpetic itch are mild; however, cases of severe postherpetic itch reducing quality of life are rare.
Immunocompromised subjects are at increased risk for herpes zoster (HZ) and HZ-related complications, such as post herpetic neuralgia (PHN). We describe health utilities, health care resource utilization (HCRU), productivity loss and health care costs in recipients of autologous hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (Auto-HSCT) who developed confirmed HZ in the phase 3 clinical trial.
Herpes zoster is linked to amyloid-associated diseases, including dementia, macular degeneration, and diabetes mellitus, in epidemiological studies. Thus, we examined whether varicella zoster virus (VZV)-infected cells produce amyloid.
Cord blood transplant (CBT) recipients have a high incidence of herpes zoster (HZ) in the context of short-term peri-transplant antiviral prophylaxis. In 2009, international guidelines recommended HZ prophylaxis for at least 1 year after hematopoietic cell transplant (HCT). The impact of longer-term antiviral prophylaxis on HZ incidence after CBT is unknown.
HIV infection and juvenile systemic lupus erythematosus (jSLE) are risk factors for the development of herpes zoster (HZ) and its complications. Both diseases share similar immunological aspects, such as immunodeficiency and immune activation. Therefore, our objective was to evaluate and compare the frequency and characteristics of HZ episodes in pediatric patients with HIV infection and jSLE.
To describe an unusual presentation of a primary lymphoma of the central nervous system in a patient who, four months prior to admission, was diagnosed with herpes zoster ophthalmicus (HZO).
The present guidelines are aimed at residents and board-certified specialists in the fields of dermatology, ophthalmology, ENT, pediatrics, neurology, virology, infectious diseases, anesthesiology, general medicine and any other medical specialties involved in the management of patients with herpes zoster. They are also intended as a guide for policymakers and health insurance funds. The guidelines were developed by dermatologists, virologists, ophthalmologists, ENT physicians, neurologists, pediatricians a...
Herpes zoster (HZ) is caused by reactivation of varicella zoster virus (VZV) that established latency in sensory and autonomic neurons during primary infection. In the Shingles Prevention Study (SPS), a large efficacy trial of live attenuated Oka/Merck zoster vaccine (ZVL), PCR-confirmed second episodes of HZ occurred in two of 660 placebo and one of 321 ZVL recipients with documented HZ during a mean follow-up of 3.13 years. An additional two ZVL recipients experienced a second episode of HZ in the Long-...
