Varicella zoster meningitis with associated vasculitis in a two-month post-partum woman
Reactivation of varicella zoster virus occurs more often in the elderly or immunocompromised persons. During pre­g­nancy increased anti-inflammatory cellular response promotes tolerance of foetal antigens. Post-partum a shift towards an inflammatory response may facilitate the reoc­currence of latent infections. Varicella-associated vasculitis can lead to ischaemic lesions in the brain. We report a case of a two-month post-partum woman suffering from head­ache, nausea, vomiting, photophobia and radicular pain with varicella zoster meningitis and an ischaemic lesion in the splenium of corpus callosum.
