Motor complications in thoracic herpes zoster were evaluated in 52 patients by electromyographic examination of the paraspinal muscles. At the initial EMG examination, abnormal findings were observed in 18 patients (35%). In 8 patients the myomers involved coincided in location with affected dermatomes, while in 10 patients, in addition to the involvement of myomers corresponding to affected dermatomes, there also appeared an involvement of one or more contiguous myomers not corresponding to affected dermatomes. Our study demonstrated that motor involvement in thoracic HZ is much more common than previously suggested and its incidence (35%) appears to be greater than that reported in both cervical and lumbosacral HZ.
