Abstract

Poindexter Peterson,* an 84-year-old man, had been diagnosed with herpes zoster ophthalmicus (HZO). He had a vesicular rash over his left eye and the left side of his face, and he was prescribed a one-week course of oral antiviral medication. His rash and swelling almost completely resolved, but the pain persisted. One month after the initial diagnosis, no longer able to bear the intractable pain around his left eye, and unsure why his left eyelid was still droopy, Mr. Peterson went to the emergency department.
