Genital herpes is an infection of the external genitals with herpes simplex virus (HSV-1 or -2), resulting in clusters of genital sores (inflamed papules and vesicles). Morphology of herpes simplex virus: The family of herpes viruses is of icosahedral shape, they contain double-stranded DNA (84 proteins). Mechanisms of genital herpes infection: After binding of the virus to cell membrane receptors, endocytosis and dissolution of the viral shell (envelope) follows. Immune response after HSV infection: HSV inhibits the presentation of immunologically important protein fragments on the MHC class 1 proteins. Transmission of genital herpes: HSV is transmitted through oral-genital or genital contact. Genital sores: Grouped papels or vesicles on an erythematous base are pathognomonic for genital herpes. First Manifestation of Herpes Genitalis: Balanitis, urethritis or herpetic vulvovaginitis, sometimes without typical genital sores. Complications of Genital Herpes: 1% of the patients with primary genital herpes develop an autonomic dysfunction with urinary retention, erectile dysfunction, constipation and sensory losses.
Recurrent Genital Herpes: Recurrent genital herpes is often caused by HSV-2 with typical genital sores (see above).


The detection of the virus is possible by a cell culture or PCR from cerebrospinal fluid or vesicles.
In recurrent genital herpes, the patients should have the medication prepared at home and should begin the therapy by themselves. Other antiviral substances: On the basis of aciclovir, pro-drugs such as famciclovir or valacyclovir have been developed. Experimental Therapy: Vaccinations in animal experiments show promising results, clinical trials should be awaited. The capsid (a protein cage) encases the DNA, which is wrapped by an envelop (lipid bilayer). Furthermore, HSV inhibits the apoptosis of the host cell in response to the viral infection.
The primary symptoms are more pronounced with secondary recurrent genital herpes and are induced by both virus types. Neonatal herpes simplex presents either with a local infection (skin, eye or mouth), disseminated manifestation (internal organs) or central manifestation (CNS).
Furthermore, serological tests can reveal a HSV infection in the past, but disease activity cannot be measured. The start of therapy with begin of prodromal symptoms can prevent the outbreak of the disease relapse.


Risk group for the HSV-2 infection: sexually active young people with multiple partners, sex workers, lack of condom use, homosexual people, living in an urban area. Furthermore, HSV inhibits DNA transcription, destroys mRNA and splicing of RNA from the host cell.
If there already has been an oral HSV-1 infection, the symptoms of primary genital herpes are attenuated.
Frequently, patients feel genital paresthesias before a manifestation of recurrent herpes genitalis becomes visible. After the outbreak and healing of herpes genitalis, HSV-DNA remains in the nucleus of the neuron without viral replication (latency).
After a certain time, various factors (see below) may trigger a further clinical manifestation of herpes genitalis (recurrence). Even then, an asymptomatic viral shedding can infect the partner, but the therapy improves the quality of life.
Systemic administration of aciclovir relieves the symptoms and accelerates the healing of the lesions, but cannot influence the probability of disease recurrence.
