Abstract

Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS) is a polineuropathy which occurs in any time after a primary infection of varicella Zoster virus (VZV). It is a rarely manifestation of VZV but it is usually more common with aging or immunocompramised conditions. In this paper we present a case report of RHS involving facial and vestibulocochler nerves after vaccination with inactive influenza vaccine.
