Abstract
Recurrent zoster myelitis is quite rare. We present a previously healthy 27-year-old woman who developed recurrent attacks of myelopathy shortly after the characteristic skin rashes of herpes zoster. Magnetic resonance imaging studies demonstrated each lesion in the spinal cord at the same segments as the skin lesions. She had two attacks at opposite sites at the same spinal cord level and complete recovery after being treated with intravenous acyclovir. We suspect that direct invasion of varicella zoster virus was the cause of recurrent myelopathy in our patient.
