Objective To study the sonographic changes of skin and cutaneous nerves in patients of herpes zoster with high-frequency ultrasonography. Methods In sixty-seven patients of herpes zoster color Doppler ultrasonography were performing to examine with thickness and echo feature of the dermal and subcutaneous tissue as well as diameter and echo feature of the cutaneous nerves. The above results were compared with the contralateral uninjured side of the same patient. Results Compared with the uninjured side,at the stage of preeruption and erythema or exanthema,the thickness of skin or subcutaneous tissue was increased (P 0.01),the diameters of the cutaneous nerves were also increased (P 0.01),and the echoes were significantly decreased; at the stage of populovesicle,the thickness of the skin or subcutaneous tissue was increased unmarkedly (P 0.1),the echo was not decreased,but the diameters of the cutaneous nerves were increased (P 0.01),and the echoes were decreased,too. Conclusion High-frequency ultrasound can detect abnormal sonographic appearances in the skin,subcutaneous tissue or cutaneous nerves of patients with early stage herpes zoster. Thus this approach could provide imaging evidence for early clinical diagnosis and reduce misdiagnosis.
