Background: The efficacy of nerve block on the progression of herpes zoster still remains controversy. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of epidural blockade on the pain course of acute herpes zoster. Methods: Among 75 patients admitted with acute herpes zoster, 40 patients were treated with acyclovir and epidural block (epidural group), 35 patients were treated with acyclovir only (no block group). Follow up with patients was done for up to 3 months, either at the outpatient department or by telephone. The days required for pain relief were compared. We also investigated the factors associated with outcome. Results: Though statistically insignificant, patients in the epidural group tended to have faster pain relief. Patients with shorter symptom duration experienced significantly faster pain relief. But other factors such as sex, age, involved dermatome and other coexisting diseases (cancer, diabetes mellitus) were not associated with the outcome in this study. Conclusions: Though patients with epidural block leaded to have taster pair relief, more studies with larger patient population may be needed to confirm the efficacy of epidural block on herpes zoster.
