Abstract

Herpes zoster characteristically presents as a painful lesion affecting a single dermatome. In unusual circumstances including patients with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), it presents with a multidermatomal pattern. This case report describes an unusual site of occurrence of this disorder presenting initially as dental pain in this patient who was later found to have HIV/AIDS.
