Summaries for Geniculate Herpes Zoster

About this section
NIH Rare Diseases:45 Herpes zoster oticus is a common complication of shingles, an infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus (which is the virus that also causes chickenpox). shingles occurs in people who have had chickenpox and the varicella-zoster virus becomes active again. herpes zoster oticus is caused by the spread of the virus to facial nerves and can cause intense ear pain; a rash around the ear, mouth, face, neck, and scalp; and paralysis of the face. other symptoms may include hearing loss, vertigo (feeling that the room is spinning), tinnitus (hearing abnormal sounds), loss of taste in the tongue, and dry mouth and eyes. some cases of herpes zoster oticus do not require treatment, but when treatment is needed, pain medications, antiviral drugs or corticosteroids may be prescribed. vertigo is sometimes treated with medication as well. the prognosis of herpes zoster oticus is typically good but in some cases, hearing loss or facial paralysis may be permanent. last updated: 12/3/2010

MalaCards based summary: Geniculate Herpes Zoster, also known as herpes zoster oticus, is related to facial paralysis and colitis, and has symptoms including vesicular rash of the ear or mouth, tinnitus and vertigo. An important gene associated with Geniculate Herpes Zoster is MT-TC (Mitochondrially Encoded TRNA Cysteine), and among its related pathways are Primary immunodeficiency and amb2 Integrin signaling. Affiliated tissues include facial nerve, tongue and eye.

Disease Ontology:10 A viral infectious disease that results in inflammation located in facial nerve, which leads to paralysis of one side of the face, has material basis in human herpesvirus 3, which reactivates after appearing as chickenpox in childhood. the infection has symptom vesicular rash of the ear or mouth, has symptom tinnitus, has symptom vertigo, has symptom otalgia, and has symptom headache.

NINDS:46 Some cases of herpes zoster oticus do not require treatment. When treatment is needed, medications such as antiviral drugs or corticosteroids may be prescribed. Vertigo may be treated with the drug diazepam
