Herpes zoster occurs due to reactivation of the latent varicella zoster virus and is usually a disease of the elderly. Childhood herpes zoster is believed to be rare, and particularly the ophthalmic form, defined as herpes zoster of the ophthalmic branch of the fifth cranial nerve. This can be responsible for serious eye complications requiring adequate and early management. We report a new case.

A 4-year-old child, with no pathological antecedents, presented with a left vesicular-crusted frontal rash evolving in a context of fever and general state preservation. The evolution was marked by a rapid extension of lesions with conjunctival hyperemia and tearing, without pruritus. The ophthalmic examination with the slit lamp and the fundus eye was normal, and then put on emergency aciclovir. The evolution was marked by clinical improvement with regression of oedema and pain. A minimal biological analysis was performed including a normal blood count, blood sugar and HIV serology. The current retreat is 18 months without any recurrence or post-herpetic pain.
