Abstract

Human trigeminal ganglia were tested by double fluorescence in situ hybridization for the presence and distribution of herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1) and varicella-zoster virus (VZV) latency. Latency transcripts of both viruses were detected in common areas within the ganglia. Also, a few single neurons were shown to harbor HSV-1 and VZV together.
