Herpes zoster is a well-known reactivating viral disease that gives rise to painful skin lesions. Although this vesicular rash heals up within a few weeks, pain sometimes continues, becoming postherpetic neuralgia.

INTRODUCTION A. The spinal cord and spinal nerves mediate reactions to environmental changes. The spinal cord has several functions. It processes reflexes. It is the site for integration of EPSPs and IPSPs that arise locally or are triggered by nerve impulses from the periphery and brain.

It is located on the surface of the posterior pelvic wall, anterior to the piriformis muscle. The plexus is formed by the anterior rami (divisions) of the sacral spinal nerves S1, S2, S3 and S4.
