Abstract

We report a further case of retarded contralateral hemiplegia syndrome after herpes zoster ophthalmicus in which the motor deficit was caused by an ischemic infarction in the territory supplied by the anterior choroidal artery. We discuss the clinical and physiopathogenetic features of the case and consider the computed tomographic and neurological patterns of anterior choroidal infarction.
