Varicella-zoster virus reactivation can cause painful and vesicular rashes involving some dermatomes, which is defined as herpes zoster. We reported a 68 years old man who had come to the clinic with a complaint of hematuria. In the examination, varicella-zoster lesions were visible on the left buttock. After beginning valacyclovir for the patient, cystoscopy was done due to the existing polypoid mass in sonography. Red patches, fragile and bleeding places were seen in the cystoscopy on the left bladder wall without any evidence of any mass. This patient was managed conservatively. One week after the first ultrasonography, new sonography by the same radiologist showed no evidence of bladder mass.
