Abstract

Our case report describes disseminated cutaneous Herpes Zoster in the early post-operative period following cardiac surgery with cardiopulmonary bypass. This has not been reported previously in the absence of immunosuppressive therapy. Despite associated neurologic and respiratory impairment, our patient was treated successfully with intravenous Acyclovir and subsequently discharged.
