DEFINITIONHerpes zoster is an infectious disease by the varicella zoster virus that attacks the skin and mucosa, is a reactivation of the virus infection that occurs as a reactivation of the varicella zoster virus entering through periferal nerve during the initial episode of chickenpox, then settled in posterior spinal ganglion.

EPIDEMIOLOGYHerpes zoster occurs sporadically and not seasonally.The average age of patients with herpes zoster is 64 years, while the average age of the U.S. population is 46 years. The incidence of shingles ranged from 1.2 to 3.4 cases per 1,000 person-years in the study of immunocompetent individuals in society, but increased to 3.9 to 11.8 cases per 1,000 person-years among those > 65 years aged.RISK FACTORThe main risk factor is old age Immune dysfunction Female gender Physical trauma to the affected dermatome White race People with a family history of herpes zosterETIOLOGYVaricella and herpes zoster is caused by the same virus, called varicella-zoster virus (VZV)VZV contain icosahedral capsid shaped surrounded by a lipid envelope covering the virus genome, the genome which contains a linear molecule of double-stranded DNA. 150-200 nm in diameter and has a molecular weight of approximately 80 million.



Fever, Dizzy, Malaise Muscle pain, Itchy, Soreness

Erythematous macules and papules Vesicle, with edema at the skin base crusts in the end.CLINICAL MANIFESTATION Unilateral, depend of the skin that innervated by a single sensory ganglion.Mostly; trunk from T3 L2, trigeminal nerve (ophtalmic division).Rarely; distal, to the elbows or kneesPain; 30 days following rash onset



12DIAGNOSEAnamnesis & Physical Examination; see the distributionHistophatology; intraepider- mal vesicle, acantholysisTzank Smears; multinucleate giant cell, with nuclear changesPCR; detect DNA of VZVELISA; enzyme linked immunosorbent assay

COMPLICATIONOphtalmic Zoster (1st Trigeminal Nerve); Neurothropic Keratitis, Chronic Ulceration2nd & 3rd Trigeminal Nerve; Ramsay-Hunt syndrome (facial palsy), Tinnitus, Vertigo, and DeafnessPain Herpetic Neuralgia (PHN); Neurons damage in the spinal cord and ganglion, to the peripheral nerve.

DIFFERENTIAL DIAGNOSIS Contact Dermatitis; Erythema with vesicle, & edema skin base. Confirmation test:Patch Test

THERAPYPrincipal for HZ therapy is for (1) limit the extent, duration, and severity of pain and rash in the primary dermatome, (2) for prevent disease elsewhere, (3) prevent the PHN. Kind of treatment of HZ:Topical therapyAntiviral therapyAnti-inflammatory therapyAnalgesicsTreatment for PHNPrevention of HZTOPICAL THERAPYCool compressesCalamine lotionCornstarchBaking sodaFor help to alleviate local symptoms &hasten the drying of vesicular lesions, for acute phase of HZ.
