Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) is a neuropathic pain condition that develops in approximately 15% of individuals with herpes zoster infection. The disease most commonly occurs as a result of an age-related decline in cell-mediated immunity. The pathophysiology encompasses both peripheral and central mechanisms, and treatment options include pharmacological and interventional modalities, as well. Herpes zoster (HZ) is the reactivated form of the Varicella zoster virus (VZV), the same virus responsible for chickenpox. HZ is more commonly known as shingles, from the Latin cingulum, for “gir-dle.” This is because a common presentation of HZ involves a unilateral rash that can wrap around the Herpes Zoster and Postherpetic Neuralgia:File Size: KB.

Herpes zoster can occur at any age but most commonly affects the elderly population. Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), defined as pain persisting more than 3 months after the rash has healed, is a debilitating and difficult to manage consequence of by:   Postherpetic neuralgia after herpes zoster can considerably affect quality of life.

The current treatment options are discussed here Herpes zoster (shingles) affects up to half of all people who live to 85 years of age and can lead to long term morbidity.

Appropriate treatment controls acute symptoms and reduces the risk of longer term by: A comparison is made between facial postherpetic neuralgia and trigeminal neuralgia. There is an extensive section on treatment, including the role of opioids, the general treatment of postherpetic neuralgia, intervention and neurosurgical approaches, and covering guidelines for clinical trial designs in postherpetic neuralgia.

Longer-term complications include visual disturbances and postherpetic neuralgia (PHN), which is potentially the most troubling problem of all, and is associated with severe itching and allodynia.

These can combine to negatively impact the day-to-day functioning and quality of life of the by: Herpes zoster is caused by reactivation of the latent varicella zoster virus (VZV) that causes chicken pox. VZV remains dormant in the dorsal root and cranial ganglia and can reactivate later in a person’s life and cause herpes zoster, which appears predominantly in older adults, but may also occur in those that are immunocompromised.
