Core Tip The occurrence of transverse myelitis (TM) secondary to varicella zoster virus (VZV) in immunocompetent patients is very rare. VZV-TM should be suspected when a patient visits an outpatient pain clinic with herpes zoster and presents neurological symptom(s). VZV-TM must be diagnosed early, by magnetic resonance imaging and/or cerebrospinal fluid analysis, since delayed intervention may allow for serious complications to develop. Also, early administration of a combination of antiviral drugs and corticosteroids may help resolve the condition and relieve the associated pain experienced by patients with TM secondary to VZV.
