A 71-year-old man developed a facial diplegia following right ophthalmic zoster. Neurological examination also revealed loss of reflexes in the lower limbs with increase of CSF protein. Unusual cases of the Ramsay Hunt syndrome and Guillain-Barré syndrome seen with herpes zoster were reviewed. These cases including our case may suggest that the bilateral involvement or its wider spread throughtout nervous tissue can rarely occur in the Ramsay Hunt syndrome and its subgroups.
