Abstract

Herpes zoster is considered rare in pediatric age. However some cases could be unrecognized because of a benign clinical course without symptoms. There is evidence that herpes zoster affects moreover children with a history of exposure to varicella-zoster virus in the first life's year. The Authors report 6 cases of herpes zoster observed in a group of children aged between 7 months and 13 years. Four out of them had varicella during the first life's year; a 7-month-old infant, who had not previously contracted varicella, presented a history of intrauterine exposure to varicella-zoster virus. In all cases, who were treated with oral or topical acyclovir, lesions underwent involution without sequelae.
