Abstract

We describe a patient with zoster paresis and an MRI that revealed extensive spinal cord lesions from the upper cervical to the lower thoracic spinal cord. Importantly, the patient reported considerable spontaneous improvement in strength 2-3 weeks after zoster. This report reveals a previously undescribed remarkable preponderance of MRI lesions far beyond the site of zoster rash and focal lower motor neuron weakness.
