Abstract

Disseminated cutaneous herpes zoster in healthy persons is not very common, though it has been described in immunocompromised patients. We present a case of a disseminated herpes zoster in a 33-year-old man with no apparent immunosuppressive condition after one single steroid injection. The patient was successfully treated orally with 800mg Acyclovir daily dose for one week.
