Two Interesting Cases of Zoster

Two Interesting Cases of Zoster Abstract I have recently seen two interesting cases of zoster that were thought worthy of reporting. Case 1.— A white male, age 6 months, was first seen on May 18, 1962. The child is the youngest of seven children. At the age of 2 months he had a mild attack of chicken pox when several other siblings had the disease. He now presented on the right side of his face and scalp a typical vesicular eruption. The vesicles were arranged in groups and some were pustular with a little surrounding inflammatory reaction. It extended down on to his neck and into the hairy scalp but stopped sharply at the midline. (Figure). He was irritable as though he had discomfort in the area. The eruption very gradually faded so that by June 4 it was markedly improved and by June 12 it was gone. There was no residual pain. Case 2.*— A References 1.

Abstract

Abstract I have recently seen two interesting cases of zoster that were thought worthy of reporting. Case 1.— A white male, age 6 months, was first seen on May 18, 1962. The child is the youngest of seven children. At the age of 2 months he had a mild attack of chicken pox when several other siblings had the disease. He now presented on the right side of his face and scalp a typical vesicular eruption. The vesicles were arranged in groups and some were pustular with a little surrounding inflammatory reaction. It extended down on to his neck and into the hairy scalp but stopped sharply at the midline. (Figure). He was irritable as though he had discomfort in the area. The eruption very gradually faded so that by June 4 it was markedly improved and by June 12 it was gone. There was no residual pain. Case 2.*— A References 1.
