Prevention and treatment of neonatal herpes simplex virus infection.

Herpes simplex virus (HSV), a member of the Herpesviridae family, is a well-known cause of infections including genital herpes and herpes labialis in the adolescent and adult population. Transmission of HSV infection to an infant during the first 4-6 weeks of life can lead to devastating disease with the potential for poor outcomes. Early diagnosis is imperative when evaluating neonatal HSV infection in order to prevent further disease progression, neurological complications, and even death. In the past 4 decades, significant advancements have been made in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of neonatal HSV infection, but there remains room for improvement as efforts continue to reduce the burden of disease caused by this infection.
