ABSTRACT
Herpes zoster oticus (HZO) is characterized by facial nerve palsy, otalgia and auricular vesicles on the affected side and accepted to be caused by the reactivation of varicella zoster virus (VZV) in the geniculate ganglion. Vestibulocochlear deficits are known to be frequently accompanied by HZO. Unusual clinical manifestations such as only vertigo without facial nerve palsy or hearing loss has been reported. We report a case of 27-year-old man presented with vertigo, sensorineural hearing loss and vesicular eruptions on the left auricle without facial nerve palsy. Serologic test revealed that the patient was positive for immunoglobulin G (IgG) and IgM antibodies against VZV.
