Causes of Nongenital Herpes Simplex Virus Infection
Most of these infections are caused by HSV-2, but 15 to 30 percent are found to be caused by herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1). Most cases occur in the intrapartum period, but they may occur in utero and postnatally through contact with oral or skin lesions.
* Disease localized to the skin, eye or mouth
