In the presented case, 51 year-old man has admitted with left-sided headache, left periorbital edema, ptosis and chemosis, and he was diagnosed as thrombotic vasculitis of internal carotid artery by cranial magnetic resonance and angiographic imagings. After the initiation of methylprednisolone therapy, typical maculopapular herpetic rash over the ophthalmic branch of trigeminal nerve appeared, the diagnosis of herpetic vasculitis and conjuctivitis was made.
