Ramsay Hunt syndrome (RHS) is the reactivation of herpes zoster in the geniculate ganglion and typically presents the triad of ipsilateral peripheral type facial paralysis, ear pain, and erythematous vesicles in the external auditory canal and auricle. However, some unusual variants may occur. Here we present a patient of atypical RHS with uncommonly extensive dermatomal involvement of cranial nerve (CN) V2 and V3 and cervical roots, C2, C3 in addition to CN VII and VIII involvement.
