Abstract

The association between Jewish ritual circumcision and genital herpes simplex virus type 1 infection has been well described. We report a case of genital herpes that first presented at the age of 22 years. We believe that the infection was acquired asymptomatically through direct orogenital suction performed during circumcision in the newborn period.
