Post-zoster Granuloma

Abstract

We present a patient who developed granuloma in a previous herpes zoster scar (post-zoster granuloma). The development of granuloma in healed herpes zoster lesions may represent an atypical delayed hypersensitivity reaction to viral antigens or tissue antigens altered by the virus. To our knowledge, this is the first case reported in Korean literature.
