Ocular involvement in herpes zoster also called as herpes zoster ophthalmicus occurs in 10-25% of cases.15,16 This involves the ophthalmic branch of the trigeminal nerve and results in a disproportionately high complication rate (50% in the absence of antiviral drugs) with the eye affected in several possible ways.17 Less common manifestations of zoster include the Ramsay-Hunt syndrome (involvement of the geniculate ganglion of the facial nerve) which manifests as vesicles in the external auditory canal and palate associated with loss of taste to the anterior two-thirds of the tongue and facial weakness.
Based on the results of intraoperative nerve stimulation, the facial nerve appeared to have a conduction block at the geniculate ganglion, so facial nerve decompression was performed.
