Since the severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic outbreak, vaccines gained a growing role. Possible vaccine-related side effects range from minor local events to more prominent systemic manifestations up to anaphylactic reactions. A heterogeneous spectrum of cutaneous reactions has been reported, ranging from local injection site reactions to urticarial and morbilliform eruptions, pernio/chilblains and zoster flares. Here, we describe a case of varicella zoster virus reactivation following mRNA coronavirus 2019 vaccine and discuss the available literature upon the topic published so far.

Abstract

Since the severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) pandemic outbreak, vaccines gained a growing role. Possible vaccine-related side effects range from minor local events to more prominent systemic manifestations up to anaphylactic reactions. A heterogeneous spectrum of cutaneous reactions has been reported, ranging from local injection site reactions to urticarial and morbilliform eruptions, pernio/chilblains and zoster flares. Here, we describe a case of varicella zoster virus reactivation following mRNA coronavirus 2019 vaccine and discuss the available literature upon the topic published so far.
