Clinical Information:
Herpes simplex virus (HSV) types 1&2 are members of the Herpesviridae family, and produce infections that may range from mild stomatitis to disseminated and fatal disease. Clinical conditions associated with HSV infection include gingivostomatitis, keratitis, encephalitis, vesicular skin eruptions, aseptic meningitis, neonatal herpes, genital tract infections, and disseminated primary infection.
 
Reference Value:
Negative ( < 1:10 )
 
Interpretation:
This assay detects IgG antibodies to herpes simplex virus (HSV), and cannot differentiate types 1 and 2.
The presence of IgG antibodies to HSV types 1&2 indicates previous exposure, and does not necessarily indicate that HSV is the causative agent of an acute illness.
