Herpesviruses are abundant in nature. Nowadays more than 100 herpes viruses are distinguished, a small amount of which occurs in humans. Herpesvirus can remain persistent in a human body for the entire lifetime causing diseases with multiple clinical implications.

Varicella zoster virus (VZV) causes two types of lesions: chickenpox and herpes zoster. It invades a body during the childhood and remains in sensory cerebrospinal and cerebral ganglions in a latent form. With immunity deterioration the virus becomes active and causes radiculitis. In some cases retrograde spread of the virus in the CNS via sensitive pathways occurs. Vesicular rashes appear on the skin of patients suffering from herpes zoster.
