This paper is a case presentation and discussion of a 12-year-old boy previously in excellent health who presents with dematomal herpes zoster. Although not unheard of, the occurrence of herpes zoster in the pediatric population is infrequent. This case provides the opportunity to address many of the aspects of herpes zoster that are unique to the pediatric population including epidemiology, pathophysiology, management and course, and the potential impact of the live attenuated varicella vaccine, recently approved for the prevention of the primary varicella infection, chickenpox.
