Abstract
Herpes zoster is not a common disease in healthy children. Neurologic complications can occur to herpes zoster patients but rare in immunocompetent children. It usually affects patients with immunocompromised or impaired cellular immunity. Aseptic meningitis is especially rare in the various neurologic complications that are induced by varicella-zoster virus. We experienced a case of herpes zoster meningitis in a previously healthy child.
Key Words: Herpes zoster, Varicella-zoster virus, Aseptic meningitis, Neurologic complications
