Abstract

One hundred twenty-four patients presented with herpes zoster in a small-town, solo practice between 1983 and 1992. This article reviews the clinical features and natural history of herpes zoster, followed by a description of the cases seen in the study practice. This common disease, easily diagnosed and treated by the family physician, usually responds well to treatment with acyclovir.
