Oral sores: a rare presentation of Herpes zoster
AbstractHerpes zoster is one of the common dermatological diseases in elderly. It is clinically diagnosed by the presence of vesicles in a zosteriform pattern, appearing along one or two dermatomes. We report a rare presentation of herpes zoster occurring over hard palate. Early recognition of such rare presentations of Herpes zoster and treatment with antivirals at the appropriate time is the most essential step required to decrease the morbidity.
