Abstract

Herpes zoster infections (HZIs) or, shingles are painful eruptions, usually unilateral, caused by the re-activation of varicella zoster virus (VZV) showing dermatomal distribution. The most commonly affected dermatome is thoraco/lumbar dermatome followed by cervical and trigeminal. The incidence of herpes zoster infections (HZIs) or, shingles increases with age and with immuno-suppression. This case series brings forth cases with herpes zoster infections affecting the maxillary division of trigeminal nerve (V2) showing manifestations in the middle third of face and oral cavity in the affected patients and their successful management with appropriate therapeutic measures taken.
