VIROLOGY - CHAPTER ELEVEN HERPES VIRUSES Mercutio (to Romeo) in Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare:
O'er ladies lips, who straight on kisses dream,
Which oft the angry Mab with blisters plagues,
Because their breaths with sweetmeats tainted are:
Sometime she gallops o’er a courtier’s nose,
And then dreams he of smelling out a suit;
And sometime comes she with a tithe-pig’s tail
Tickling a parson’s nose as a’ lies asleep.... For the complete text of this speech, go here FIGURE 1 Classification of Herpes viruses Introduction
Herpes viruses are a leading cause of human viral disease, second only to influenza and cold viruses. They are capable of causing overt disease or remaining silent for many years only to be reactivated, for example as shingles. The name herpes comes from the Latin herpes which, in turn, comes from the Greek word herpein which means to creep. This reflects the creeping or spreading nature of the skin lesions caused by many herpes virus types. There are 25 families in the Herpetoviridae but only six of them are known to infect man with any regularity (table 1 and 2, figure 1)

Shingles (Herpes Zoster)
Shingles (otherwise known as Herpes Zoster) is a painful, blistering rash caused by the chickenpox (varicella) virus, which affects only a limited area of skin, and makes you feel surprisingly tired, run down, and even depressed.
You may feel slightly unwell, and develop a localised area of pain and tenderness a few days or sometimes up to two weeks before the rash appears. The rash starts off as red spots, which quickly turn into blisters. They always affect only one side of the body (left or right) and never cross the midline. This is because they come out on the area of skin which is supplied by one particular nerve. The rash may affect any part of the body, including head and limbs. It may thus appear as a band around one side of the chest or abdomen, or down an arm or leg. It may affect the head, and when it affects the upper cheek or the side of the forehead it may also affect the eye. You should certainly see your doctor if you have shingles affecting the side of the head, and especially if it seems to affect the tip of your nose or the eye itself. It is usually a very painful rash, and typically people can't bear clothes touching the affected area.

Herpes Symptoms
Herpes is caused by a virus (Herpes Simplex HSV). The most common symptom is a single blister or cluster of painful blister-like lesions. Lesions are generally found around the mouth, nose or genitals. In females the genital lesions appear around the vaginal opening, urethra, anus and buttocks. Local swelling, burning upon urination and unusual vaginal discharge may occur. Males may develop blisters on the penis and/or around the anus and buttocks. The fluid-filled lesions are highly contagious. The lesions may last up to three weeks. They will usually crust over, form a scab and then heal completely without scarring. Other symptoms may include fever, headache, swollen glands, muscular aches and fatigue. These symptoms are most common during the first episode. Some individuals with Herpes develop mild symptoms or no symptoms at all. Incubation and Transmission Herpes virus is spread though skin to skin contact from an area where the virus is present to a skin site that is susceptible. The virus may effect mucous membranes and the skin around the mouth, nose, vagina, urethra, anus or eyes. Oral, anal and vaginal sexual intercourse are sexual behaviors or activities that may transmit the virus. Kissing and close skin to skin contact without intercourse can also pass the virus.

Genital Herpes Center
Detailed Information Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted disease that affects over forty million people. Estimates state that each year more than five hundred thousand new cases develop. Genital herpes is a viral infection that develops usually through sexual contact. It is possible to contract the disease via contact with hands that have been contaminated by the virus, but this is very rare. There is no cure for genital herpes. Once you've been infected, the virus remains in the nerve cells in latent form. The initial outbreak of painful sores on and around the genitals (following an incubation period that usually spans five to 10 days) can last anywhere from one to three weeks. After the first one, the infected person goes into remission and may have more mild attacks every few months or years. Permanent remission can and does occur in one-third of infected individuals. Genital herpes is extremely contagious. Even if you exhibit no symptoms of the disease, you can still transmit the virus to your partner if you have it. Men can give women the disease more easily than the other way around. An infected mother can give it to her baby during childbirth; that baby is then subject to mental retardation, loss of vision and death. Contracting it puts you at greater risk of contracting HIV (the virus that causes AIDS).

The virus has two separate manifestations; Type 1 (labial herpes) and Types 2 (genital herpes). Labial herpes typically exist around the mouth. This is the virus which causes common cold sores and mouth blisters. Genital herpes generally exists on the genitals. It is important to note that labial herpes can be transmitted to the genitals and vice versa. This section concentrates on the symptoms, causes and treatments for genital herpes. About US Privacy

Herpes Viruses
Herpes infections are caused by viruses. A virus is an organism that invades cells, and while it is there, disrupts the normal activities of the cell. There are eight human herpes viruses. They include herpes simplex I (HSV 1), herpes simplex 2 (HSV 2), cytomegalovirus (CMV), varicella-zoster virus (VZV), Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), and human herpes virus 6 (HHV 6), human herpes virus 7 (HHV 7) and human herpes virus 8 (HHV 8). HSV 1 is the virus usually associated with cold sores or fever blisters on the lips, nose, chin and sometimes other parts of the face. Most HSV 1 infections are contracted during the childhood years, and many infections go completely unnoticed, as the symptoms can be very minor or not apparent. About 70% of adults in the US display evidence of a previous HSV 1 infection when their blood is tested for HSV 1 antibodies. This percent is declining over time, perhaps as more people recognize that cold sores are caused by "herpes" and more care is taken not to kiss others when cold sores are present. As with HSV 2, HSV 1 virus can be transmitted when no sores are visible. HSV 2 is the virus usually associated with genital herpes infections. About 22% of people in the US over the age of 12 show evidence of HSV 2 infection when their blood is tested by a test that accurately distinguishes between HSV 1 and 2. Although the two viruses are slightly different, both are capable of living anywhere on the human body, but more about that later.

N eonatal herpes simplex virus (HSV) infections are transmitted from an infected mother, usually vertically, during delivery. The incidence of infection is approximately one per 3,000 to 20,000 live births. A woman who experiences a primary episode of genital HSV during the third trimester and who has not completed seroconversion by the onset of labor has a 33 percent chance of transmitting the virus to her infant. In contrast, a woman experiencing a secondary reactivation of HSV during the intrapartum period has approximately a 3 percent chance of transmitting the virus to her infant.

Prof. Dr. med. Matthias Volkenandt, Oberarzt an der Klinik und Poliklinik für Dermatologie und Allergologie der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München Windpocken hatte als Kind fast jeder: Die roten Bläschen, die teuflisch jucken und Narben hinterlassen können, wenn man kratzt. Doch wer glaubt, gegen das Virus immun zu sein, wenn er die Windpocken überstanden hat, der irrt. Herpes Zoster, das Windpocken-Virus, versteckt sich nach der Erkrankung in den Nervensträngen und hält einen Dornröschenschlaf, oft über viele Jahrzehnte. Irgendwann wittern die Viren dann ihre Chance - zum Beispiel wenn das Immunsystem des Menschen geschwächt ist - und erwachen: Eine Gürtelrose entwickelt sich. Bei jedem zehnten Erkrankten bleiben auch nach Abklingen der Symptome einige Zeit lang Nervenschmerzen zurück. Christina Teuthorn befragte Prof. Dr. med. Matthias Volkenandt

A patient information handout on shingles, written by the authors of this article, is provided on page 2447. H erpes zoster results from reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus. Unlike varicella (chickenpox), herpes zoster is a sporadic disease with an estimated lifetime incidence of 10 to 20 percent. The incidence of herpes zoster increases sharply with advancing age, roughly doubling in each decade past the age of 50 years. Herpes zoster is uncommon in persons less than 15 years old. In a recent study, patients more than 55 years of age accounted for more than 30 percent of herpes zoster cases despite representing only 8 percent of the study population. In this same study, children less than 14 years old represented only 5 percent of herpes zoster cases. The normal age-related decrease in cell-mediated immunity is thought to account for the increased incidence of varicella-zoster virus reactivation. Patients with disease states that affect cell-mediated immunity, such as human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection and certain malignancies, are also at increased risk. Chronic corticosteroid use, chemotherapy and radiation therapy may increase the risk of developing herpes zoster.

Genital Herpes What you need to know:
Genital herpes is a sexually transmitted infection. A virus causes it. Herpes can cause painful genital sores. Some people who have genital herpes don't have symptoms. Most don’t know they have the infection. For women who have sores, the first outbreak may last two to four weeks. Another outbreak can occur in weeks or months. It is almost always less severe and shorter than the first. Over time, the number of outbreaks tends to decrease over time. Genital herpes is common in the United States. One out of five adults has genital herpes. It is more common in women than men. Babies can get the disease during delivery as they pass through the birth canal. If a baby does get herpes, the disease can be fatal. Fortunately, women rarely give the infection to their babies during delivery. If a woman has active sores when she delivers, she usually has a cesarean section Health care providers can diagnose genital herpes by looking at the genitals. They may also take a sample from the sores and test it in a laboratory. Blood tests may also be used.
