Bottom Line: Herpes zoster is caused by varicella zoster virus infection involving the dorsal root ganglia of spinal nerve roots.This common problem can be associated with multiple neurological abnormalities.We present a case of Herpes zoster affecting the T1 dermatome associated with ipsilateral Horner's syndrome and radicular weakness.

f1-imcrj-1-1: Photograph of patient showing Herpes zoster rash in T1–T2 distribution with associated right sided ptosis and meiosis.

Mentions: Physical examination revealed right sided ptosis and meiosis. Other cranial nerves were normal. Abductor pollicis brevis, flexor pollicis brevis, opponens pollicis, lumbricals, hypothenar muscles, adductor pollicis, flexor pollicis brevis, and palmar and dorsal interossei muscles of the right hand were weak. A vesicular eruption was noted in the right T1–T2 distribution (Figure 1).
