Abstract:
Background: It is reported in the literature that an extensive varicelliform rash can occur in 2% to 10% of unknown patients with herpes zoster. Case presentation: We report the case of a 65-year-old man with several vesicles eruptive, distributed all over the body and diagnosed as herpes zoster. Conclusions: The objective of our observation is to underline the interest of knowing this diagnosis which is often wrongly taken as a Varicella-herpes zoster association.
