Abstract

We present four cases of herpes zoster treated successfully with vidarabine-5-monophosphate, two patients receiving chernotherapy and radiation therapy due to Hodgkins lymphoma or colon cancer, a patient combined with viral meningitis, and a patient with herpes zoster ophthalmicus. Viclarabine can be used to treat herpes zoster in immunosuppressed patients or patients with malignancy or patients with severe complications.
