TLDR
This article enlightens the dental professionals with an adequate knowledge about the pathogenesis, clinical manifestations and specific sites of primary and recurrent lesions of herpes simplex virus which will highly help them in timely diagnosis, management and also for controlling the spread of infection.

Seroprevalence of Herpes Simplex virus types 1 and 2 and their Association with CD4 count among HIV-positive patients
TLDR
Investigation of the seroprevalence of HSV type 1 and HSV-2 in HIV-positive patients compare with the rate in HIV -negative patients and to evaluate their association with CD4 count found high with no correlation withCD4 count. Expand
Epidemiology of herpes simplex and varicella zoster virus in cerebrospinal fluid of patients suffering from meningitis in Iran
TLDR
As the rate of VZV infection was high among children patients and it was associated with the absence of vaccination program for chickenpox in Iran, it is suggested that VZv is one of the plausible hallmarks in meningitis. Expand
Risk of severe herpes simplex virus infection in systemic lupus erythematosus: analysis of epidemiology and risk factors analysis in Taiwan
TLDR
Patients with SLE are at higher risk of severe HSV infection, and related risk factors include being older than 18 years, having a history of HSV mucocutaneous infection, recent receipt of steroid pulse therapy and a daily oral dose of steroid over 7.5 mg prednisolone. Expand
[Morphological diagnosis of viral damage to a kidney transplant].
TLDR
The principles of differential diagnosis of kidney transplant damage caused by viral infections and that with acute cellular and humoral rejection are described, which plays an important role due to opposite approaches to treating these diseases. Expand
Current Antivirals and Novel Botanical Molecules Interfering With Herpes Simplex Virus Infection
TLDR
Currently available anti-herpetic therapies, novel molecules being assessed in clinical trials and new botanical compounds reported in the last 20 years with antiviral activities against HSVs that might represent future treatments against these viruses are reviewed. Expand
HSV-1 as well as HSV-2 is frequent in oral mucosal lesions of children on chemotherapy
TLDR
In a novel finding, real-time PCR detected copies of HSV-2 in 69 % cases, all missed by conventional PCR, which is commonly shed from oral mucosal lesions in children receiving chemotherapy. Expand
THE ROLE OF HUMAN HERPESVIRUS AND GBV-C COINFECTIONS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF NON-HODGKIN'S LYMPHOMA IN HIV-1 POSITIVE INDIVIDUALS IN THE MULTICENTER AIDS COHORT STUDY
TLDR
The hypothesis that EBV and CMV coinfections drive HIV-1 disease progression and the development of HIV-associated non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is supported and the results suggest that GBV-C plays a protective role against theDevelopment of non-hodgkins lymphoma in HIV- 1 positive individuals. Expand
Seroprevalence of herpes simplex virus type 1 and type 2 in Thuringia, Germany, 1999 to 2006.

TLDR
The prevalence of herpes simplex virus (HSV) type-specific IgG was determined in sera taken in 1999 to 2006 from 1,100 children aged 0–18 years, 800 blood donors and 200 pregnant women in Thuringia, Germany, using tests based on the HSV glycoproteins gG, suggesting that gG-1 and gC-1 can be considered equivalent antigenic targets.

Correlation between infection of herpes virus family and liver function parameters: a population-based cross-sectional study.
TLDR
Seropositivity to herpes virus family was correlated with abnormal liver function parameters across years of age, and Clinicians should aim to protect the liver function of children infected with herpes viruses. Expand

Management of Neonatal Herpes Simplex Virus Infection
TLDR
High rates of morbidity and mortality in disseminated infections, followed by central nervous system infection and the least in SEM infection are seen, however, SEM infection is associated with poor developmental outcome even in infants who do not have encephalitis, and the prognosis for this infection is considerably improved.

Genital herpes complicating pregnancy.
TLDR
Prevention of the initial neonatal infection is critically important and Obstetricians are in a unique position to prevent vertical HSV transmission by identifying women with genital lesions at the time of labor for cesarean delivery, prescribing antiviral suppressive therapy as appropriate, and avoiding unnecessary invasive intrapartum procedures inWomen with genital herpes.
