Herpes zoster is an infectious disease of the dorsal root ganglion and sensory nerve fibers. Motor nerve involvement is a rare complication. Hiatal hernia occurs when the stomach protrudes into the thoracic cavity through the esophageal hiatus of the diaphragm. Herein, we present the case of a 78-year-old man with abdominal wall muscle paresis caused by herpes zoster, which resulted in a hiatal hernia.
Key Words : Abdominal muscles, Herpes zoster, Hiatal hernia, Paresis.
