Abstract

Oro-facial manifestations of herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections are very common, and include primary herpetic gingivo-stomatitis, recurrent herpes labialis and recurrent intra-oral herpes. Recent research in molecular biology has advanced our knowledge of the HSV pathogenesis and behavior. Understanding the exact mechanism of HSV latency and reactivation enables improvement of drug therapy and prevention strategies of HSV infections. The aim of this review is to update the recent development in the biological and clinical research related to HSV infection, focusing on oral and perioral lesions.
