Herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) strains belonging to the same genotype can possibly share biological properties and clinical manifestations common to the genotype. We classified previously 66 HSV-1 strains into 35 genotypes (F1-F35) using restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) and F1 and F35 genotypes were revealed to be predominant [Arch. Virol. 13 (1993) 29]. It was found later that the F35 genotype seemed to be closely associated with eczema herpeticum [J. Med. Virol. 49 (1996… CONTINUE READING
