Abstract

Summary. Zoster is referred to as an infectious disease that, affecting the nerve ganglia, can manifest itself in a different clinic, depending on the nerves involved in the process.

Since, in addition to the chest wall and pleural cavity, the lower intercostal nerves innervate the abdominal wall, peritoneum and give branches to the internal organs, the disease may manifest itself with clinical signs of diseases of the chest or abdominal cavities.

The authors share the observation of zoster, which manifested signs of acute pancreatitis, and only after 7 days did the symptoms of the underlying disease — zoster appear.
