Abstract
We report a case of a concurrent reactivation of varicella zoster virus and herpes simplex virus in an immunocompromised patient unaware of her longstanding human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection. Despite being a rare event, concurrent reactivation of the two alphaherpesvirinae has been reported in various conditions, either in immunocompetent or immunocompromised patients. However, a reactivation in the same anatomical location in a person living with HIV seems to be an extremely rare event.
