Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We present a case of a 78-year-old woman with abdominal-wall muscle paralysis following cutaneous herpes zoster in the T12-L1 dermatomes. An EMG confirmed paralysis, and a CT scan ruled out fascial defect. The paralysis had completely resolved 1 year later. A review of the literature regarding these unusual sequelae of herpes zoster is presented.
