Reactivation of Herpes Zoster Keratitis With Corneal Perforation After Zoster Vaccination

Conclusions: We present a case of reactivation of herpes keratouveitis shortly after vaccination with Zostavax in a patient with previous herpes zoster ophthalmicus. We demonstrate, for the first time, ultrastructural evidence consistent with inactive virus capsids in diffusely degenerated keratocytes in the extracted corneal tissue.

UK Abstract In patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) primary varicella zoster virus (VZV) infections (chickenpox) or reactivation (shingles, herpes zoster) pose a particular challenge for neurologists and physicians in everyday clinical practice. On the one hand the various immunotherapeutic agents for treatment of MS have differently expressed risks for VZV-associated infections and on the other hand the currently available vaccination strategies (dead vs. live vaccines, single vs. combination vaccines) require an individualized approach. Moreover, in addition to the optimal timing of vaccination during the...

This study aims to characterize attitudes and knowledge towards immunization practice of people aged>65 years for seasonal influenza (SIV), pneumococcus (PNV), and Herpes zoster (ZV) in a sample of Italian general practitioners (GPs). MATERIALS AND METHODS: During 10/2018, a structured questionnaire was emailed to 274 GPs operating in the Province of Parma, Italy. Association between willingness to perform aforementioned vaccines and individual factors was assessed through a multivariate regression analysis by calculating multivariate Odds Ratio (mOR). RESULTS: A total of 73 GPs (26.6% of original sample) comp...
