Abstract: The treatment of Herpes zoster by acupuncture is described. These were four patients with acute zoster and four with post-herpetic neuralgia. in a majority of the cases electro-acupuncture was found to be effective, and this treatment should be instigated as early as possible. Since the treatment of Herpes zoster by drugs is not routinely successful and can prove expensive, acupuncture, whose side effects are minimal, merits a trial.
