Genital herpes is the most common sexually transmitted disease, ulcerative represents in developed countries. It is caused by human herpesviruses 1 (HSV-1) or 2 (HSV-2). After the initial infection, HSV becomes latent in Spinalnervenganglien from which it can emerge again occasionally. If the virus appears, it may (or may not) lead to symptoms (d. H genital lesions) .. The transfer can occur through contact with the lesions or -häufiger- through skin-to-skin contact with sexual partners, if lesions are not visible (so-called. asymptomatic casting). Pregnant women with genital herpes can transmit HSV (usually HSV-2) on the fetus or the newborn. Typically, HSV is transmitted during childbirth by contact with vaginal fluid, containing the HSV. The virus is rarely transmitted generally through the placenta. Mothers of newborns with HSV infection often have a recently acquired genital infection, many have the time of birth no apparent history or symptoms of acute genital infection. The Neonatal HSV infection is a serious, potentially fatal infection. Symptoms and signs Most cases of primary genital herpes cause any noticeable symptoms; many people who are infected with HSV-2 do not know that they have genital herpes. 4-7 days after exposure to primary genital lesions develop. The vesicles erode mostly and form ulcers, which may coalesce. The lesions can occur at the following locations: Genital herpes (vulva) © Springer Science + Business Media var model = {thumbnailUrl: ‘/-/media/manual/professional/images/125_genital-herpes_slide_2_springer_high_de.jpg?la=de&thn=0&mw=350 ‘imageUrl:’ /-/media/manual/professional/images/125_genital-herpes_slide_2_springer_high_de.jpg?la=de&thn=0 ‘, title:’ Genital herpes (vulva) ‘description:’ u003Ca id = “v38396513 “class = ” anchor “” u003e u003c / a u003e u003cdiv class = “” para “” u003e u003cp u003eDieses photo shows pustules in primary genital herpes of the vulva. u003c / p u003e u003c / div u003e ‘cr edits: ‘© Springer Science + Business Media’
