IntroductionLymphoid neoplasms are among the most common hematologic malignancies. Viral infections are important causes of mortality and morbidity in patients with lymphoma. The majority of viral infectious complications in these patients result from the reactivation of various viruses such as Herpes Zoster (HZ). Most cases of HZ are self-limited; however, immunocompromised patients have a higher mortality rate from HZ and are at greater risk for recurrences and more serious and atypical complications.The most important established risk factors for developing HZ in cancer patients include neutropenia, duration and intensi...

Immunization with Oka varicella vaccine reduces the incidence of herpes zoster (HZ) in vaccine recipients [1 –3], and universal varicella vaccination since October 2014 has reduced the HZ incidence in children aged 1 to 4 years in the Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan. The effect of universal varicella vaccination on the HZ incidence has been clarified by the Miyazaki study on HZ, which began in 1997 [4–6]. U niversal varicella vaccination increased the HZ incidence in the child-rearing generation by the loss of the chance to boost immunity to varicella-zoster virus [4].
