Herpes simplex virus infection;
HSV infection
Herpes simplex viruses (HSV-1 and HSV-2) are responsible for long-term latent infections causing recurrent painful blisters on an erythematous base. HSV-1 and HSV-2 are the usual cause of herpes labialis and herpes genitalis, respectively. However It is now widely accepted that HSV-1 is an important cause for genital herpes. Infection can also occur in other parts of the body such as the brain (called herpes encephalitis), spinal cord (called herpes meningitis), cornea of the eye (called herpes simplex keratitis) and skin (called eczema herpeticum) if the immune system is severely defective or compromised. HSV spreads through direct contact. Most HSV infection are asymptomatic. However when symptoms do occur, they tend to be more severe with primary compared with recurrent infections. An initial episode of herpes may produce a systemic prodrome of fever and malaise.
