Summary of Sindrome de Ramsay Hunt PDF Download

The Ramsay Hunt Syndrome (RHS), also called by Herpes Zoster Oticus (HZO), is a
disease caused by reactivation of varicella zoster virus (VZV) in the geniculate ganglia. This
illness represents the second cause of peripheral facial paralysis (PFP) atraumatic and occurs in
7-16% of cases.(1,2) Although it could manifest in any age, the incidence of RHS is higher in the
second and third decades of life, and it is uncommon in childhood. It is also higher in
immunosuppressed patients, like HIV positives, in use of cytotoxic and steroid medications.(1)
The presence of PFP and ipsilateral otalgia accompanied by vesicles in the auditory canal are
classic syndrome of HZO.(1-3) Vertigo, nausea, vomiting, nystagmus and sensorineural hearing
loss are additional clinical features.

(1,2) Involvement of cranial nerves trigeminal,
glosopharyngeal, vagus and hypoglossal occurs less frequently.(1)
The diagnosis is basically clinic and, in doubtful cases, by laboratorial confirmation. The
recommended treatment for RHS is corticosteroid and antiviral therapy.(2-4) Studies demonstrate
that the combined therapy reveals a better prognostic of the patient.(4) The presented case
demonstrates the classic triad of the disease, but it is essential that the clinician look carefully to
the several presentations, since RHS can present only vague symptoms or atypical scenario
