Postherpetic Neuralgia overview

Postherpetic neuralgia (PHN) emerges as the predominant long-term consequence of varicella-zoster virus (VZV) reactivation, commonly known as herpes zoster or shingles. VZV, responsible for childhood varicella (chickenpox), historically affected the majority of American adults before widespread vaccination. While future generations may experience lower rates of herpes zoster and PHN, the latter remains clinically significant. PHN diagnosis heavily relies on history and physical examination, complemented by laboratory tests and targeted imaging for atypical presentations. Prevention involves identifying high-risk populations for VZV contraction and administering vaccines. Early recognition and treatment of acute HZ infection, along with symptom management using multimodal approaches, constitute essential strategies. Despite evolving evidence, prevention is crucial, given PHN’s often refractory nature, with many sufferers achieving only temporary relief despite comprehensive therapy.
