Clinical manifestations of HSV infections include genital tract infections, neonatal herpes, meningoencephalitis, keratoconjunctivitis, and gingivostomatitis. Most infections at non-genital sites are caused by HSV-1, whereas both HSV-1 and HSV-2 may cause genital herpes. Compared to HSV-1 genital infections, HSV-2 genital infections are associated with higher recurrence rates and asymptomatic transmission events; thus information on the HSV type causing genital infection is useful in guiding treatment and management options. Although HSV IgM is detectable in most cases of primary HSV infection, it may also be found in association with recurrences.
