About this Series

In many patients, a case of herpes zoster, or "shingles," can be cut and dry—a clear-cut diagnosis of a condition readily treated with antivirals and pain medications. But when the patient is immunocompromised or elderly, or the condition is misdiagnosed or medications ineffective, as in the case of herpes zoster ophthalmicus, a seemingly straightforward virus can turn complex. A team of NYU Langone Medical Center specialists from internal medicine, dermatology, and neurology delve into the unpredictable and confusing aspects of the growing incidence of herpes zoster, a diagnosis that affects a third of Americans during their lifetime—and for some, a cause of chronic physical and emotional sequelae.
