Herpes is a disease cause by one of the filter - passing DNA viruses. The lesion in man is inflammation of a sensory nerve ganglion.
It is characterized by the formation of small vesicles in clusters.
There are two distinct forms
1. Herpes zoster or shingles - in which the vesicles follow the distribution of a sensory nerve.
The eruption is always unilateral, running in a zone as far as the middle line, and is preceded by neuralgic pains, which in old people may be very persistent and severe. The vesicles begin as papules, and leave some scarring. An attack is followed by lasting immunity.
2. Herpes simplex - in which the is no such distribution of the vesicles.
This is a common form of herpes which may complicate pneumonia and other fevers ( here febrilis ). It usually occurs on the lips ( herpes labialis ), but may be on the cornea or external genitals.
It differs from herpes zoster in being recurrent, not following the line of nerves, and causing no change in the cerebrospinal fluid.
