Summaries for Herpes Zoster Oticus

NIH Rare Diseases : 52 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 in whom 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), nausea, vomiting, 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.

MalaCards based summary : Herpes Zoster Oticus, also known as geniculate herpes zoster, is related to ramsay hunt syndrome i and obsolete: ramsay hunt syndrome type ii, and has symptoms including vertigo, headache and tinnitus. An important gene associated with Herpes Zoster Oticus is MT-TC (Mitochondrially Encoded TRNA-Cys (UGU/C)). Affiliated tissues include facial nerve, eye and tongue.

Disease Ontology : 12 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 : 53 Herpes zoster oticus, also called Ramsay Hunt Syndrome or Ramsay Hunt Syndrome type II, is a common complication of shingles. Shingles is an infection caused by the varicella-zoster virus, which is the virus that causes chickenpox. Shingles occurs in people who have had chickenpox and represents a reactivation of the dormant varicella-zoster virus. Herpes zoster oticus, which is caused by the spread of the varicella-zoster virus to facial nerves, is characterized by intense ear pain, a rash around the ear, mouth, face, neck, and scalp, and paralysis of facial nerves. Other symptoms may include hearing loss, vertigo (abnormal sensation of movement), and tinnitus (abnormal sounds). Taste loss in the tongue and dry mouth and eyes may also occur.
