Neonatal herpes simplex disease (HSV) is a rare but life-threatening infection associated with high rates of morbidity and mortality. Recent studies indicate that the incidence rate has continued to rise over the past decades, while the mortality remains unchanged. Early clinical suspicion of HSV and parenteral antiviral treatment of acute disease is essential for the prognosis. The subsequent use of suppressive therapy with oral acyclovir has further enhanced the long-term prognosis. This review presents evidence of risk factors, clinical presentation, prevention, and management of HSV in newborns.
