Abstract
Herpes zoster is a common disease of the dorsal root ganglia and sensory nerve fibers that is clinically characterized by a painful unilateral vesicular eruption of the skin in a dermatomal distribution. Segmental motor weakness is a rare complication that occurs in 0-5% of patients and is associated with an excellent prognosis for recovery. We herein present a case of herpes zoster complicated by segmental motor paresis of the abdominal musculature resulting in a pseudohernia. This rare complication of herpes zoster, which has an excellent prognosis for recovery, should be recognized by physicians as it can save costly consultations and evaluations.
Key Words: Herpes zoster, Pseudohernia
