Abstract: The varicella zoster virus (VZV) which is distributed world-wide, is a neurodermotropic virus that remains dormant in the sensory ganglion and on reactivation causes Herpes zoster (HZ). The condition is characterised by the occurrence of multiple, painful, unilateral vesicles, ulceration and shows a typical single dermatome innervated by single dorsal root or cranial sensory ganglion. Involvement of three or more dermatomes is known as disseminated zoster and is seen in immunocompromised individuals. Incidence of HZ increases with age and immunosuppression. Therefore prompt management is necessary to avoid morbidity and mortality in these individuals. Here in we report a case of Herpes zoster involving maxillary and mandibular branches of trigeminal nerve.
