AbstractHerpes zoster occurring at two different sites in the same individual at the same time, involving more than two segments at each site has rarely been reported. We recently observed two such cases. The first patient was a HIV-infected 20-year-old haemophiliac who had zoster involving the distribution of the right C4,5,6 and left L2,3,4 dermatomes and the second one was a 50-year-old renal transplant recipient on immunosuppressive drugs who developed zoster at left C3,4,5 and left T7.8.9.
