Herpes Infection In Nerves

Herpes simplex encephalitis (HSE) is a life-threatening consequence of herpes simplex virus (HSV) infection of the central nervous system (CNS). Although HSE is rare, mortality rates reach 70 in the absence of therapy and only a minority of individuals return to normal function. In adults, Herpes Simplex Encephalitis is caused by HSV-1, which gains access to the brain by traveling backwards along facial sensory nerves which have been infected.

However, the meninges are not the only component of the CNS involved in HSV-2 infection. Virtually any part of the neuraxis may be affected by this virus, including the retina, brain, brainstem, cranial nerves, spinal cord, and nerve roots. After the initial infection, HSV remains dormant in nerve ganglia, from which it can periodically emerge, causing symptoms. Recurrent herpetic eruptions are precipitated by overexposure to sunlight, febrile illnesses, physical or emotional stress, immunosuppression, or unknown stimuli. Both type 1 and type 2 herpes simplex viruses reside in a latent state in the nerves which supply sensation to the skin. During an attack, the virus grows down the nerves and out into the skin or mucous membranes where it multiplies, causing the clinical lesion.

The well-known complications of genital herpes are recurrent painful genital sores and psychological distress in persons who know they are infected. However this nerve pain NEVER occured prior to my infection and it WAS terrible during my first outbreak and now continues to bother me occasionally. However, numerous other infections in the central nervous system can mimic HSE.

A new theory suggests CFS may be the result of a pathological infection of the vagus nerve. Herpes zoster is an infection resulting from reactivation of the varicella-zoster virus (VZV) that affects peripheral or cranial nerves and usually occurs years after primary infection with the varicella (chickenpox) virus or receipt of the live, attenuated varicella vaccine. Secreted Herpes Simplex Virus-2 Glycoprotein G Modifies NGF-TrkA Signaling to Attract Free Nerve Endings to the Site of Infection. Thus, herpes is not a skin infection, but rather an infection of nerve cells, by way of the skin. It is not the skin that is infected but rather the nerve cell. When the infection becomes active again in the nucleus of the nerve cell, the viral particles flow back out, down the nerve, and out through little blisters that form in the skin. Infants with herpes viral infection of the CNS that has or has not spread to other parts of the body will be enrolled in this study. A physical exam, hearing exam, eye exam, and an evaluation of the nervous system will be performed throughout the study.

Autonomic nervous system involvement in experimental genital infection by herpes simplex virus type 2. Peroxidase-antiperoxidase technique and histology were employed to elucidate the peripheral routes involved in HSV-2 progression from vagina towards the central nervous system in mice. Herpes zoster (HZ) is a nervous system infection caused by the varicella virus, the same virus responsible for chickenpox Figure 01. Herpes zoster (also called shingles) is an infection that primarily occurs in adults 50 years of age or older. No one before has looked carefully at mitochondrial motion during alpha-herpes virus infection in neurons. We provide new insight into how these viruses damage cells in the nervous system in ways that are important for the virus to propagate, Kramer said. Herpes simplex virus (HSV) causes a wide spectrum of clinical manifestations in the central nervous system (CNS) of infants (encephalitis with or without disseminated visceral infection) and adults; the virus likely accounts for at least 10 to 20 of all viral encephalitis in the United States (60). Abstract. Human herpesviruses may cause infections of the central nervous system during primary infection or following reactivation from a latent state. Infection of the nervous system can involve the meninges (meningitis) or the brain substance itself (encephalitis) , or both (meningoencephalitis). It is caused by the type I herpes simplex virus, normally present in cold sores. Herpes zoster, teeth, trigeminal nerve, trigeminal neuralgia. Primary infection usually occurs through the bulbar conjunctiva or upper respiratory tract mucosa, following direct contact with skin lesions or inhalation of virus-infected respiratory secretions 2.
