Reports of spontaneous tooth exfoliation and osteonecrosis following Trigeminal Herpes Zoster are extremely rare and have been sporadic. Here we report a case of a 42-year-old man who exhibited prodromal odontalgia before the appearance of vesicular mucocutaneous lesions, together with severe destruction of the maxillary bone and spontaneous exfoliation of teeth. A review and analysis of the clinical aspects and the pathogenesis of Herpes zoster and bone necrosis are discussed.
