We report a case of varicella-zoster vasculopathy that occurred in a 42-year-old renal transplant recipient with concurrent vertebral artery aneurysm and dissection. The patient was successfully treated with embolization and acyclovir therapy. Here, we review the English literature regarding the association of varicella-zoster virus infection with cerebral aneurysm.
