Postherpetic pseudohernia

Ketan Vagholkar.

Abstract
Herpes zoster usually affects middle aged individuals who are immunocompromised by virtue of co morbidity. Sensory complications are a common aftermath. However motor complications are rare. Post herpetic paresis leading to pseudo hernia is a rare complication. History of herpes zoster followed by development of a bulge is diagnostic of a pseudo hernia. Computed tomography is essential to confirm the normalcy of the body wall and rule out any defect or mass. Treatment is conservative aimed at treating the viral infection and its sensory sequel. Awareness of this rare condition is essential to avoid futile investigations and unindicated surgical intervention.

Key words: Pseudohernia, Herpes Zoster, Paresis
