Herpes in Brain

Dear Dr. Rob:

I have a friend whose 19 year old daughter has encephalitis. They are saying she has all the symptoms of herpes. This is causing great confusion because how would the herpes virus effect her brain. They haven’t been able to isolate the virus culture yet and even though they say all the results coming back say it is NOT herpes, since she has all the symptoms, that’s what they’re treating her for. We’ve always thought herpes was genital or a fever blister type effect. This herpes in the brain is a real new one.

Dr. Rob’s Response:

Dear Poster Who Asks About Encephalitis:

I’m not quite sure what “all the symptoms of herpes” means. Encephalitis
can be caused by Herpes Type 1, but it’s usually caused by Herpes Type 2.
It can also be caused by a number of other herpes viruses.

Please email us with further details and I would be more than happy to discuss this at greater length.
