Herpesviruses 1 and 2


Herpes virus simplex viruses share the unique biologic properties of neurovirulence and latency, which enable them to cause recurrent and persistent infections. These viruses are members of the larger Herpesvirus family containing Cytomegalovirus (human herpesvirus 5) , Epstein-Barr Virus (human herpesvirus 4) and Varicella Zoster Virus (human herpesvirus 3).
