Caption: Shingles rash (red) on the back of a 72-year-old woman. Also known as herpes zoster, the scabbed healing lesions are seen here three weeks after the rash developed. This is a T12 distribution, associated with the spinal nerve from the T12 vertebral level of the spine (in the lower back). Shingles is the reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus which lies dormant in the nerves after causing chicken pox. A shingles rash is limited to the area of skin supplied by the nerve in which the virus lay dormant, in this case the nerve at the level of the 12th thoracic vertebra.
