Although this seems to be rare clinically, peripheral motor and/or sensory nerves are affected in 5% to 30% of patients with herpes zoster. Although the time frame of motor and sensory nerve involvement varies, the most common time frame is 2 weeks after the skin :// Start studying PGA9_Spinal Nerves and Plexuses.

  Peripheral nerves emerge from the plexuses which each run to a supply area. Their last branches consist mostly of sensory skin nerves (peripheral innervation).
