Discussion in 'Spot Diagnosis' started by apparat, Apr 11, 2013.
Have a crack - answers in a week!
this is mostly a clinical diagnosis in the appropriate setting. Here u have grouped vesicular lesions in a seemingly debilitated patient and although it is not strictly confined to a single dermatological distribution, i wud still go 4 Herpes Zoster.
I can go about this 4 ever, but ppl r a little bored wid me P:, they want a new star and u hav all d potential and enthusiasm. So, i will leave the rest of the discussion to u or anybody else who wishes to make a mark (Y)
Keep up the good work, Apparat (-:
Yes I agree. Herpes zoster.
You are all very clever, good job. Was due to prednisolone use - gave him some famciclovir for 7/7. Forgot to do a viral swab to confirm, but its a clinical diagnosis as per the textbooks, so +1 me =P
if he develops Post herpetic neuralgia, what wud b ur line of Mx ?
wud u consider vaccinating him with, Varicella vaccine ?
