Corneal Epitheliopathy After Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus

  • Helena M. Tabery


The four patients presented in this chapter had in common a severe herpes zoster ophthalmicus (HZO) with corneal epitheliopathy as one of sequels. Three of them had bilateral KCS (Case 2 not tested) and three corneal hyp- or anaesthesia (Case 3 not tested), both conditions diagnosed some time after the infection had subsided. One more patient with impaired corneal sensitivity after HZO and, additionally, filamentary keratopathy is presented in Part II ( Chap. 7, Case 5).
