Rowbotham observed in 1999 that the central nervous system of PHN patients is widely and critically damaged by chicken pox - varicella-zoster virus, not only leading to the dehydration of dorsal root ganglia, the degeneration of wallerim, but clear cystic change and marked decrease in the number of the ganglion cells, especially the decrease in and the collagenization of the thicker nerve fiber axis with the myelin sheaths.

1) The lesion is similar to that of sclerosing mediastinitis, retroperitoneal fibrosis and Reidel's thyroiditis all having a common histological pattern composing of mature hypocellular fibrous tissue with variable collagenization and hyalinization admixed with an inflammatory infiltrate of lymphocytes and plasma cells.
Collagenization varies in degree, with some lesions being extensively hyalinized.
Histological examination revealed absence of any atypia or increased mitotic activity excluded malignancy, while the absence of osteoid formation and the prominent collagenization, helped distinguish the lesion from non-ossifying fibroma or odontogenic fibroma.
