Neonatal herpes simplex virus infection still remains a life-threatening infection for the newborn. With an increasing incidence of genital herpes and an increase in the incidence of neonatal herpes simplex virus infections, it is important that pediatricians and neonatologists continue to maintain a high index of suspicion in infants whose symptoms may be compatible with herpes simplex virus infections so that early identification leads to prompt treatment. We experienced a case of encephalitis due to herpes simplex virus-type 1 in a 17-day old boy who was admitted because of fever and seizure. In this case, we isolated herpes implex viruses from the culture of cerebrospinal fluid and typed the HSV by indirect immunofluorescent assay.
