KeywordsRamsay Hunt syndrome, herpes zoster oticus, ulcerative colitis, infliximab, immunosuppression
Ramsay Hunt syndrome is a rare complication of herpes zoster that results from reactivation of varicella-zoster virus in the geniculate ganglion of the VII cranial nerve. Immunosuppression can lead to reactivation of latent varicella-zoster virus, resulting in herpes zoster. Here, we present a case of Ramsay Hunt syndrome in a patient with ulcerative colitis under treatment with infliximab.
