  • Herpes zoster oticus (Ramsay Hunt Syndrome) is characterized by facial nerve paralysis, ear pain and auricular skin rash. It occurs as a result of reactivation oflatent varicella zoster virus infection in the geniculate ganglion of the facial nerve. Major clinical symptoms include 7th nerve paralysis or cranial nerve paralysis and vesicles along the nerve with cocomitant ear pain. Other cranial n…

  • We present a case of a 62-year-old Caucasian male with laryngeal cancer and Ramsay Hunt Syndrome otherwise known as herpes zoster oticus due to reactivation of the varicella zoster virus. Classic findings include the triad of ipsilateral facial paralysis, otic pain, and herpetic lesions in the sensory supply of the facial nerve. The common pathogenesis is associated with anterograde axonal reacti…
  • [Primary Ewing's sarcoma of the temporal bone: a rare case]. [Case Reports]

  • SummaryEwing's sarcoma is a malignant, round cell tumor arising from the bones and primarily affecting children and adolescent. Involvement of the skull bones is rarely reported, constituting 1%-6% of the total Ewing's sarcoma cases. We describe a 33 years old male patient having Ewing sarcoma of the mastoid and petrous parts of temporal bone, whose clinical presentation mimicked mastoiditis with…
  • A Case of Disseminated Zoster in an Immunocompetent Patient. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2019 Dec 04; 11(12):e6286.Drone E, Ganti L
  • The incidence of herpes zoster, more commonly known as shingles, is approximately 1.2 million individuals per year, which has been increasing worldwide. While the most common presentation of zoster is a rash and acute neuritis (the pain associated with the rash) within one or more contiguous dermatomes, other more serious manifestations such as herpes zoster ophthalmicus, acute retinal necrosis, …
  • [Trigeminal herpes zoster with Ramsay Hunt syndrome: a report of one case and review of literature]. [Case Reports]
    Shanghai Kou Qiang Yi Xue. 2019 Aug; 28(4):445-448.Ding ZX, Wang MY, Meng J
  • Trigeminal herpes zoster is a common disease in clinic. However, Ramsay Hunt syndrome with facial paralysis, earache and external auditory meatus herpes triad caused by herpes virus invading knee ganglion is rare. This paper reported a case of trigeminal herpes zoster complicated with Ramsay Hunt syndrome and reviewed the literature in order to further understand the nervous system infection caus…
  • Herpes zoster oticus with meningitis masquerading as malignant otitis externa. [Case Reports]
    BMJ Case Rep. 2019 Jun 07; 12(6)Cunniffe HA, Cunniffe NG
  • This is a case of an 85-year-old woman whom was admitted with otalgia and an abducens nerve palsy alongside a Pseudomonas otitis externa; she was presumed to have malignant otitis externa. However, despite optimum treatment and resolution of her otitis externa, she went on to develop an ipsilateral facial nerve palsy and sensorineural hearing loss. After further investigation, it was discovered t…
  • For Whom the Bell's Toll: Recurrent Facial Nerve Paralysis, A Retrospective Study and Systematic Review of the Literature. [Journal Article]
    Otol Neurotol. 2019 04; 40(4):517-528.Chweya CM, Anzalone CL, … Carlson ML
  • CONCLUSIONS: Recurrent facial nerve paralysis is uncommon and few studies have evaluated this unique population. Recurrent ipsilateral and contralateral episodes are most commonly attributed to idiopathic facial nerve paralysis (i.e., Bell's palsy); however, a subset harbor neoplastic causes or local manifestations of underlying systemic disease. A comprehensive diagnostic evaluation is warranted in patients presenting with recurrent facial nerve paralysis and therapeutic considerations including facial nerve decompression can be considered in select cases.
  • [Ramsey-Hunt syndrome with initial syndrome of hoarseness: a case report]. [Case Reports]
    Lin Chung Er Bi Yan Hou Tou Jing Wai Ke Za Zhi. 2019 Mar; 33(3):283-284;288.Wang X, Feng Y, Xu JC
  • Summary Ramsey-Hunt syndrome is caused by the varicella zoster virus, which mainly affects the facial nerve. The typical clinical features of Ramsey-Hunt syndrome are peripheral facial paralysis and ear herpes. In this case, initial symptoms were hoarseness and coughing, afterwards typical symptom occurred 5 days later which were earache, late-onset herpes, and facial paralysis. Ramsey-Hunt syndr…
  • Chemokines and matrix metalloproteinases in cerebrospinal fluid of patients with central nervous system complications caused by varicella-zoster virus. [Journal Article]
    J Neuroinflammation. 2019 Feb 18; 16(1):42.Lind L, Eriksson K, Grahn A
  • CONCLUSIONS: We show that both chemokines and MMPs are elevated in the CSF of patients with VZV CNS infections. Encephalitis and meningitis patients differed with respect to other chemokines (CXCL11) and MMPs (MMP-3, MMP-8, MMP-9, and MMP-12), indicating that different location of the virus gives rise to qualitative differences in the ensuing inflammatory response. In addition, the pronounced increase of MMPs in CSF of the patients with encephalitis suggests an association to the severity of this manifestation, compared to VZV meningitis and Ramsay Hunt syndrome. The role of MMPs in association to chemokines should be further investigated to evaluate their significance in the neuropathogenesis of VZV CNS infections and as a potential target for new treatment alternatives.
  • Ramsay Hunt syndrome with pontine lesion: A case report. [Case Reports]
    Medicine (Baltimore). 2019 Feb; 98(5):e14260.Ji Y, Ma GM, … Wang J
  • CONCLUSIONS: An MRI was necessary for some VZV infections limited to the cranial nerve, although there was no evidence of brain stem injury. DWI provided evidence, showing how VZV entered the brain in the early stage. This allowed the doctor to judge the necessity of a lumbar puncture.
  • Ramsay Hunt syndrome. [Review]
    J Dent Anesth Pain Med. 2018 Dec; 18(6):333-337.Jeon Y, Lee H
  • Ramsay Hunt syndrome is a type of acute herpes zoster, which occurs by reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus at the geniculate ganglion. Clinical presentation of Ramsay Hunt syndrome includes a vesicular rash on the ear (herpes zoster oticus) or in the oral mucosa accompanied by acute peripheral facial nerve paralysis. Other cranial nerves such as V, IX, XI, and XII are often involved. Addit…
  • Herpes Zoster Oticus, Ophthalmicus, and Cutaneous Disseminated: Case Report and Literature Review. [Case Reports]
    Neuroophthalmology. 2019 Dec; 43(6):407-410.Pitton Rissardo J, Fornari Caprara AL
  • Herpes zoster (HZ) is related with the reactivation of latent varicella-zoster virus (VZV) infection. This infection is associated with HZ-oticus, HZ-ophthalmicus, and disseminated-cutaneous HZ.
