Causes Herpetic Urethritis

The herpes simplex virus (HSV-1 and HSV-2) can also cause urethritis. Trichomonas is another cause of urethritis. It is a single-celled organism that is sexually transmitted. Dysuria is associated with urethritis, and HSV can be isolated in the urine. HSV-1 infection causes urethritis more often than does HSV-2 infection.

Most patients with urethritis due to genital herpes infection will have obvious herpetic penile lesions, and many with urethritis due to T. T. vaginalis can cause urethritis, particularly in heterosexual men. Painful ulcers on the genitals can be present with herpes urethritis, another sexually transmitted disease. Simple urethritis does not cause fever or severe illness. Bacteria found naturally in the genital area may also cause urethritis if they enter the urinary tract. These include the human papillomavirus (HPV) , the herpes simplex virus, and the cytomegalovirus (BIDMC, 2008).

The prevalence of various microorganisms known to cause nongonococcal urethritis, including herpes simplex virus (HSV) , was evaluated. The findings suggest that HSV can be a significant etiological agent in nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) and that the necessary laboratory investigations should be performed for all patients with clinical symptoms of NGU. Herpes simplex virus (rare) , Adenoviruscitation needed. Urethritis can be caused by mechanical injury (from a urinary catheter or a cystoscope) , or by an irritating chemical (antiseptics or some spermicides).

Dysuria may be very severe and may cause urinary retention. Dysuria is associated with urethritis, and HSV can be isolated in the urine. HSV-1 causes urethritis more often than HSV-2. To exclude concurrent infections caused by other agents, samples were tested for several sexually transmitted pathogens (Herpes simplex, Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Chlamydia trachomatis, Myeoplasma genitalium, Urea-plasma urealyticum, Trichomonas vaginalis). Recurrent HSV urethritis, due to the character of the herpetic infection, is an important exception in this approach. Also, because the female urethra is close to the vagina, sexually transmitted infections, such as herpes, gonorrhea and chlamydia, can cause urethritis. Urethritis, as characterized by urethral inflammation, can result from infectious and noninfectious conditions. T. vaginalis, HSV, and adenovirus also can cause NGU, but data supporting other Mycoplasma species and Ureaplasma as etiologic agents are inconsistent (244-247). Urethritis is inflammation (swelling and irritation) of the urethra. Viral causes of urethritis include herpes simplex virus and cytomegalovirus. Nongonococcal means that the urethritis is not caused by gonococcus, the bacterium (bak-TEE-ree-um) that causes gonorrhea (gon-o-REE-a) , a sexually transmitted disease (STD). Herpesvirus (HER-peez-VY-rus) is a virus of the family Herpesviridae (HER-peez-VY-ri-dee) , which includes the viruses that cause chickenpox, shingles, genital herpes, and cold sores.

Herpes Simplex

There are other causes of urethritis as well, not all of which require treatment. Penile ulceration from herpetic infection is the most frequent cause of genital ulceration seen in sexual health clinics. Urethritis (inflammation of the urethra, the urinary outflow tract) results in ulceration. Two relatively common viruses which can potentially cause non-specific urethritis are the adenovirus and herpes simplex. Viruses are quite different to bacteria in that while the latter are living, microscopic organism with a range of biological functions, viruses are essentially little more than self-replicating machinery in a protein coating. Adenovirus has also been established as a pathogen. Urethritis caused by HSV or adenovirus is associated with insertive oral sex among men who have sex with men. The primary causes of urethritis are linked to behaviors, like inadequate hygiene or risky sexual behaviors. Urethritis due to the herpes simplex virus can be treated with a number of medications, including: Famciclovir (Famvir). Viruses that can cause urethritis are in the herpes family, most notably herpes simplex virus (HSV). Herpetic Urethritis. Herpes simplex viruses types 1 and 2 are an uncommon cause of NGU (2-3).
