This session will review the ocular and central nervous system manifestations of Varicella Zoster Virus. We will provide an update on treatments for the various neuro-ophthalmic manifestations of Varicella Zoster. We will also review the evidence for and against the connection between Varicella Zoster and Giant Cell Arteritis. At the conclusion of this course, the attendees should be able to: 1) describe the neuro-ophthalmic manifestations of Varicella Zoster; 2) discuss the treatment of Varicella Zoster when it affects the eyes or CNS and; 3) debate the connection between Varicella Zoster and giant cell arteritis.
