139 Possible Causes for Herpes Zoster Ganglionitis

  • Herpes Zoster

    Abstract Herpes zoster is a sporadic disease that results from the reactivation of latent Varicella zoster virus infection (VZV) from the dorsal root ganglion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Herpes Zoster (Shingles; Acute Posterior Ganglionitis). Merck Manual for Healthcare Professionals [On-line information]. Available online at . Accessed July 2010.[labtestsonline.org] Herpes zoster, or shingles, is a common infection caused by the reactivation of varicella zoster virus that lies dormant in the dorsal root nerve ganglion following primary[bmj.com]

  • Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

    […] a form of herpes zoster in which the virus invades the gasserian ganglion, causing pain and skin eruptions along the ophthalmic branch of the fifth cranial nerve.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] This widespread ganglionitis may, in turn, account for the greater pain and more severe dermatomal and ocular involvement seen with zoster compared with that of herpes simplex[n.neurology.org] Upon reactivation in late adulthood, the same virus travels anterograde to cause herpes zoster ophthalmicus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Neuralgia

    In one study, patients with acute herpes zoster had either stellate ganglion blocks with bupivacaine or placebo.

  • Bell's Palsy

    Many viruses, especially herpes simplex and herpes zoster, have been suggested as initiators of this inflammatory process; however, this has not been proven.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Bell palsy was long thought to be idiopathic; strong evidence is now present to implicate reactivation of herpes simplex virus or varicella zoster virus with latent infection[radiopaedia.org] […] in the geniculate ganglion.[radiopaedia.org]
