Abstract

The use of herpes simplex virus (HSV) polymerase chain reaction for diagnosis of HSV disease involving the central nervous system has not translated into widespread use for the detection of DNAemia. We report our 6-year experience using blood polymerase chain reaction testing for HSV infection in neonates and older children with HSV disease.
