Description

HSV types 1 and 2 produce infections that are expressed in various clinical manifestations ranging from mild stomatitis to disseminated and fatal disease. The more common clinical conditions include gingivostomatitis, keratitis, encephalitis, vesicular skin eruptions, aseptic meningitis, neonatal herpes, genital tract infections, and disseminated primary infection. Infections with HSV types 1 and 2 can differ significantly in their clinical manifestations and severity. HSV type 1 is closely associated with infections of the mouth and lips, although genital infections can be common in some populations. HSV type 2 is the cause of the majority of urogenital infections and is almost exclusively found in adults.
