Varicellazoster virus

Infection with varicella-zoster virus usually occurs in childhood and causes varicella (chickenpox), when the virus spreads through the blood to the skin, causing a rash. It may also spread to nerve cells, where it may establish a latent infection. The nerves most often affected are those in the face or the trunk, and these are the areas most commonly affected in zoster (shingles) when a latent infection is reactivated.

Varicella Zoster Virus VZV

Uveitis is much more common after herpes zoster ophthalmicus. Nearly two-thirds of patients with herpes zoster involving the ophthalmic division of the trigeminal nerve may present ocular involvement, especially without acyclovir prophylaxis. Uveitis is less frequent after an episode of varicella. Ocular inflammation is often delayed relative to the onset of cutaneous lesions. An interval of 2-4 weeks may separate both diseases. Uveitis seems to be more severe when it is delayed and associated viral retinitis should be eliminated, especially in im-munocompromised or elderly patients. Grey or brown keratic precipitates are localized in the inferior part of the cornea, but may be more diffuse with a leopard pattern (Fig. 10.4). Ischaemia of the anterior segment is classically associated with VZV uveitis. The presence of sector and patchy atrophy may be related to virus-induced ischaemia. Anterior uveitis is often acute, unilateral, granulomatous, and associated with posterior synechiae...

Shingles Herpes Zoster

A line or patch of painful blisters that suddenly appears on one side of the body is probably shingles. It is most common on the back, chest, neck, or face. The blisters usually last 2 or 3 weeks, then go away by themselves. Sometimes the pain continues or returns long after the blisters are gone. Shingles is caused by the virus that causes chickenpox and usually affects persons who have had chickenpox before. It is not dangerous. (However, it is occasionally a warning sign of some other more serious problem perhaps cancer or AIDS, p. 399.)

Varicella Zoster

Varicella is a primary infection caused by varicella-zoster virus (VZV). It is very contagious and self-limited. It is characterized by a centripetal eruption of vesicles with an erythematous base. The lesions evolve into umbilicated pustules and crusts that can leave small pits. Herpes zoster (shingles) is caused by reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus. It is manifested by hyperesthesia and pain with groups of vesicles over an erythematous base. It is self-limited and in adults and elderly can cause postherpetic neuralgia.

Immune Interactions Immune Evasion

Other microorganisms have developed means of counteracting specific elements of immune responses, such as production of an IgA-degrading enzyme, IgAase, by certain strains of N. gonorrhoeae 103 Some strains of amebae also produce proteases that destroy complement.2 Reactivation of infections in old age due to waning immunity has been well demonstrated in cases of tuberculosis and varicella-zoster virus, allowing transmission to new hosts.

Dysfunction of the Afferent System

Several ocular and systemic diseases cause trigeminal dysfunction and decreased tear production. Herpes zoster ophthalmicus can reduce corneal sensation in the distribution of the first division of the trigeminal nerve, and herpes simplex keratitis can result in sectoral or diffuse reduction of corneal sensation both conditions can decrease tear production 12 . Diabetes mellitus can cause a polyneuropathy that reduces corneal sensation and causes secondary tear deficit and LKC. Reduced corneal sensation and aqueous tear deficiency are considered risk factors for diabetic keratoepithe-liopathy.

HLA Associations with Ocular Infections

Acute retinal necrosis (ARN) is due to infection with either herpes zoster or simplex viruses. As for other manifestations of disease secondary to herpes viruses, it is not clear why some otherwise healthy individuals develop this devastating infection. In one study in HLA-DQw7, Bw62 and DR4 was associated with ARN 38 and in a second study HLA-DR9 was correlated with severity of ARN 64 .

Manifestation Prior to Initial Treatment

Guish from a cotton wool spot (Fig. 11.3) 15 . However, with time the CMV lesion will grow centripetally, leaving in its wake atrophic retina. When lesions develop close to, or within, the arcades, they are often associated with retinal haemorrhages, while in peripheral lesions these haemorrhages are absent (Fig. 11.4). Satellite or skip lesions at the leading edge of the active infiltrate are a common feature. This leading edge varies in diameter but can reach 500-700 mm. Retinal edema, characteristic of zoster infection, is absent.

Differential Diagnosis

Patients may also present with a zone of active retinitis adjacent to the optic nerve. Differentiating this lesion from an optic neuritis may be difficult. The optic nerve head often will become hyperemic, but vision and visual fields are usually preserved until the optic nerve becomes infected with CMV 17 . Rapid initiation of therapy is required. Optic neuritis may be a manifestation of other viral infections such as zoster retinitis where rapid initiation of therapy is also required 18, 19 . Often these patients have a more significant visual impairment or have other manifestations of disease. There is usually little difficulty in differentiating CMV retinitis from other ocular infections. Zoster retinitis presents as a confluent peripheral retinitis with considerable retinal edema. In immunocompetent patients, there is usually severe vitreous inflammation, an unusual manifestation in AIDS patients. A more common diagnostic problem is the differentiation of toxoplasmosis from CMV,...

Geographic Distribution

Varicella is endemic, but it generally occurs in an epidemic form, mainly at the end of winter or at the beginning of spring. In the United States 3 million cases a year are reported affecting both sexes equally. Ninety percent of cases occur in children 2-10 years of age. Varicella in adolescents and adults has a higher morbidity. When varicella is complicated by pneumonia, mortality is 10-30 and even higher in immune-compromised individuals. The risk in pregnant women is low because 90-95 of the population has antibodies to VZV. Yet congenital varicella occurs in 1.6 per 100,000 births. Zoster infection may occur sporadically all year long. The annual frequency is 0.74-3.4 cases per 1,000 habitants. In the United States, 3,000-4,000 patients a year are hospitalized, and there are 100 deaths. It affects all races, and there is a slightly higher incidence in men. It is rare in children less than two years of age, and the rate of maternal-fetal contagion is 2.5 . It occurs in 2-25 of...

Progressive Multifocal Leukoencephalopathy

Has no history either of a similar rash over his face or of any visual symptoms (to rule out herpes zoster ophthalmicus). Herpes zoster of the geniculate ganglion, or Ramsay Hunt syndrome, presents as a vesicular rash on the pinna followed by ipsilateral LMN facial nerve palsy.

Pathogenesis And Immunity

As is characteristic of alphaherpesviruses, VZV replicates rapidly in a restricted range of cells in vitro with rapid cell death. VZV replicates best in human diploid fibroblasts but also infects primary human keratinocytes.116 A live attenuated vaccine strain (OKa) is propagated in WI-38 and MRC-5 diploid fibroblast lines. In cell culture, the virus remains largely cell associated with little release of infectious virus.117 However, cell-free virus can be obtained by sonication of infected cultures. Infection induces the formation of multi-nucleated cells with eosinophilic intranuclear inclusions seen both in vitro and in vivo. Transmission occurs mainly through respiratory spread, and viremia disseminates the virus to mucocutaneous sites, visceral organs, and the peripheral nervous system. Latent infection is established in cranial, dorsal root, and autonomic ganglia.118-124 The cell specificity of latent virus was previously controversial, but it is now widely agreed that latent...

Treatment And Prognosis

Although vidarabine and interferon-a have been used in the treatment of severe VZV infection, acyclovir is the drug of choice.129 Acyclovir is most effective in severe VZV infection if administered intravenously (IV) within 24 hours after the rash develops.130 Oral acyclovir treatment of otherwise healthy children with chickenpox should be considered, particularly in adolescents and secondary household contacts, although the benefit is modest.131-134 Due to the detection of acyclovir-resistant strains in patients with AIDS, foscarnet therapy should be considered for severe infection in this setting.135,136 For herpes zoster, the drugs of choice are famciclovir and valacyclovir. Early treatment of zoster has been shown to both shorten the course of cutaneous disease and reduce the duration and severity of postherpetic neuralgia.137 Topical steroids may also be useful in herpetic uveitis and keratitis. Painful zoster may be treated with wet compresses and analgesics containing codeine....

Prevention And Control

Owing to the high prevalence of the infection in the pre-vaccine era, its high transmissibility, and the fact that infected persons are contagious 24 to 48 hours before clinical signs occur, it is difficult to prevent infection by isolation. However, reverse isolation is recommended for hospitalized patients with varicella and for children or immunocompromised adults with herpes zoster. Patients with varicella should be bathed often to prevent staphylococcal and streptococcal superinfection. Immunocompromised children, neonates born to mothers who present with varicella during the week prior to and a few days after birth, and seronegative pregnant females should be treated with varicella-zoster immune globulin (VZIG) within 96 hours of exposure.145 VZIG, however, has no effect on the course of herpes zoster or on risk of reactivation.

General consideration

With modern diagnostic tests like enzyme-linked-immunosorbent (ELISA) or radial immunodiffusion assays (RIA), antibodies against Toxoplasma gondii, Toxocara canis, herpes simplex virus, varizella zoster virus, cytomega-lovirus and Epstein-Barr virus can be determined quantitatively. The Goldmann-Wittmer coefficient compares the antibody level from the serum with the vitreous and can be used to detect intraocular antibody production.

Cytomegalovirus Retinitis

Cytomegalovirus Retinitis

The optic disk is rarely infiltrated initially, but papillitis may be observed when retinitis progresses toward the posterior pole. Mild vitritis is associated with minor anterior segment inflammation. Despite slow progression of retinitis, destruction of the entire retina occurs within 3-6 months in the absence of anti-CMV therapy. Cicatricial lesions are at-rophic retina with vessel rarefaction. Fluores-cein angiography may be helpful in complex cases, when other differential diagnoses such as retinochoroidal toxoplasmosis, candida en-dophthalmitis, syphilitic retinitis, herpes simplex and herpes zoster retinitis are suspected.

Vulvovaginal Infections

Medical Vulva Development

VIRAL INFECTIONS Varicella Zoster Virus Varicella zoster virus (VZV) is a member of the herpes virus group. It persists in the body as a latent infection after the primary infection. Primary infection with VZV results in chicken pox (varicella). Herpes zoster (shingles) represents a one-time reactivation. VZV enters through the respiratory tract and conjunctiva. Herpes zoster (shingles) occurs when latent VZV resurfaces. Factors associated with recurrent disease include aging, immunosuppression, intrauterine exposure, and varicella infection at an early age. The eruption occurs unilaterally in the distribution of a dermatome supplied by a dorsal root or extramedullary cranial nerve sensory ganglion. Clinically, this is often seen on the trunk or the area of the fifth cranial nerve, but herpes zoster can appear on the buttock, perineum, and vulva (Fig. 2). Typically, two to four days prior to visible eruptions, patients report pain and par-esthesia in the involved area. This is...

Spread from the Portal of Entry

Capillaries vs continuous endothelial lining), receptors present on certain endothelial cells, and the presence of mononuclear phagocytic cells in organs such as bone marrow, liver, and spleen.2 Other less common routes of spread include peripheral nerves (e.g., rabies and varicella-zoster virus), cerebrospinal fluid (after the organisms traverse the blood-brain barrier), and serosal cavities.

Fundamental Virology

Eight human herpesviruses have already been characterized. All of these viral agents can induce ocular inflammation. The family includes herpes simplex virus (HSV) type 1 and type 2, varicella-zoster virus (VZV), cytomegalovirus (CMV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), herpes virus 6 (HHV-6), herpes virus 7 (HHV-7) and herpes virus 8 (HHV-8), also known as an agent of Kaposi's sarcoma, (KSHV). HSV and VZV are alpha herpesviruses that infect a wide variety of cell types, where they replicate rapidly (within 24 h) and can cross species barriers. CMV, HHV-6 and HHV-7 are beta herpesviruses that grow slowly in a limited number of cell types and are very species specific. EBV and HHV-8 infect mainly lymphocytes, grow slowly and are species specific. Morphologically, all herpes viruses are enveloped particles 150-200 nm in diameter, composed of a icosaedric nucleocap-sid with 20 equilateral triangle faces, containing a double strand DNA 54, 70 . Herpes viruses have the next to largest genomes in...

Varicella

The varicella-zoster virus (VZV) is a member of the human herpesvirus group. It undergoes latency and reactivation as do other herpesviruses. Zoster (shingles) arises from reactivation and is thus usually seen in older patients and especially in the immunocompromised. Varicella does not lead to zoster in another person, though vice versa applies. recommended for universal use, though it is not yet known if such vaccination influences the incidence or severity of any later shingles.

Anterior Uveitis

No codified treatment has been used on clinical trials. Topical antiviral therapy is of little benefit during viral anterior uveitis and keratou-veitis. Acyclovir and valacyclovir are active on herpes simplex and varicella zoster virus but inactive on other herpes viruses. Oral administration of antivirals is proposed in the majority of cases. In immunocompetent patients, treatment of herpes zoster ophthalmicus in the first 3 days is able to reduce the occurrence of keratouveitis and uveitis from 50 to 29 30 . Intravenous acyclovir (10 mg kg per day) may be proposed occasionally in severe forms of anterior uveitis and must be proposed to all immunocompro-mised hosts. It is important to respect a 48-h period of antiviral therapy before proposing topical corticosteroids during herpetic uveitis. Anti-inflammatory therapy should be started with high dose topical dexamethasone for a period of 8-10 days followed by a gradual tapering to be evaluated on an individual basis when inflammation...

Herpangina

Caused by the varicella zoster virus, which causes chickenpox as a primary infection. Zoster is believed to be a reactivation of the latent viral infection. In zoster ophthalmicus, the chief focus of reactivation is the trigeminal ganglion, from which the virus travels down one or more branches of the ophthalmic division such that its area of distribution is marked out by rows of vesicles or scars left by the vesicles. Ocular complications arise during subsidence of the rash and are generally associated with involvement of the nasociliary branch of the trigeminal nerve.

Answers

The answer is b. (CDC, Guidelines for Vaccinating Pregnant Women, 1998. Chin 17 e, pp 92, 96). Varicella-zoster vaccine is a live attenuated vaccine. In general, live attenuated vaccines, such as the MMR, should be avoided during pregnancy because of the potential of infecting the fetus, which may result in congenital malformation. If a susceptible pregnant woman comes in contact with varicella, the administration of varicella-zoster immunoglobulin (VZIG) should be strongly considered because the disease can be very severe for women during pregnancy. However, there is no assurance that VZIG may prevent congenital infection and malformation, a relatively rare event (risk 0.7 if acquired early in pregnancy and 2 if acquired between 12 and 20 weeks of gestation). Because neonates are at risk of developing severe generalized varicella, VZIG is also indicated for newborns of mothers who develop chicken pox 5 days prior to or within 48 hours after delivery. Hepatitis B and influenza...

Clinical Picture

Latency varies from several months to more than 10 years. The initial phase is characterized by fever, diarrhea, weight loss (wasting syndrome in 40-68 of cases), adenopathy, pruritus and other manifestations depending upon the level of cell-mediated immunosuppression. Many sexually transmitted diseases accompany AIDS gonorrhea, syphilis, hepatitis B, A, and non-A, non-B, pharyngitis, and chlamydial proctitis. In AIDS-related complex (ARC), neurologic or systemic illnesses appear, opportunist infections like oral candidiasis, multidermatomal herpes zoster, hairy cell leukoplasia, seborrheic dermatitis and retinal spots in cotton branches. Pre-existing dermatoses, like atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and Reiter's syndrome, deteriorate as the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome becomes increasingly severe. When AIDS is established, the following can appear Kaposi's sarcoma (7-50 ) (Fig.58.1), Hodgkin's disease and non-Hodgkin-lymphoma, Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia (74 ) that presents on...
