Mualla Biçer, Neslihan Alpaslan, Murat Çabalar.

Abstract
Postherpetic shoulder paresis is a rare complication of the herpes zoster disease. Motor deficit can include root, plexus or peripheral nerves. We had a 71 year old female patient who presented with pain in her left shoulder and skin eruption. At the end of an electromyography (EMG) acute-subacute findings belonging to the superior truncus of brachial plexus were observed. The patient’s pain decreased after physical therapy combined with acyclovir and gabapentin treatment, but no improvement was observed in her paresis.

Key words: Herpes zoster, shoulder paresis, rehabilitation
