Herpes zoster may be associated with a number of neurological complication. Herper zoster ophthalmicus and delayed contralateral hemiparesis is a well-described entity. We report a patient who had acute cerebral infarction 8 weeks after herpes zoster ophthalrnicus. Brain CT disclosed large cerebral infarction in the right middle cerebral artery territory. Decompressivecraniectomy was perforrned because of the impending uncal herniation on the 4th admission day. Pathological finding of resected brain parenchyrna and meninges showed the early cerebral infarction without evidence of vasculitis or er;cephalitis. Postoperatively the patient was improved.
