Antiviral susceptibilities of herpes simplex virus isolates from infants with recurrent mucocutaneous lesions after neonatal infection.


Recurrent mucocutaneous lesions occur in many infants after completion of antiviral therapy of neonatal herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection. To determine whether these recurrences were caused by viruses that had become resistant to acyclovir or vidarabine, we tested the antiviral susceptibilities of 22 pretherapy and 32 posttherapy HSV isolates from 22… (More)
