Herpes Zoster is a neuro-cutaneous disorder caused by reactivation of Varicella-Zoster Virus. A number of factors such as old age, psychological stress, low immune states, radiation exposure and physical trauma have been implicated for reactivation. Post traumatic herpes zoster involving maxillary and ophthalmic division of trigeminal nerve is very rare and has been reported in presence of Immune deficiency and following iatrogenic trauma (nerve block injection). We report a unique presentation of simultaneous ophthalmic and maxillary herpes zoster following a facial injury with a wooden stick in an immune-competent female.
