Faecal incontinence is difficult to treat. Usually the cause is secondary to sphincter disruption caused by birth trauma. Complete resolution of incontinence is rare. This case report describes an infective cause for faecal incontinence that was completely reversible. The importance of this case is the effect of Sacral nerve Herpes Zoster on bowel and bladder function. It is our aim to make the colorectal fraternity aware of Herpes Zoster faecal incontinence. It is a rare condition but ultimately treatable with complete resolution.
