[Optimal detection of herpes simplex virus in clinical specimens preserved in transport media].

[Article in French]

Abstract

The sensitivity of the methods used for HSV detection depends upon the stage and the transport of the collected lesions. High detection rates are achieved with early vesicular lesions rather with ulcers and scabs . Since HSV is heat-labile and to avoid loss of infectivity, specimens should be collected in transport medium and inoculated as soon as possible on the cell cultures.
