REBELLO, André Soares et al. Molecular detection of simultaneous reactivation of VZV and HSV in a patient with a clinical history of roseola infantum. J. Bras. Patol. Med. Lab. [online]. 2003, vol.39, n.3, pp. 207-209. ISSN 1676-2444. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1676-24442003000300005.
A feverish 29-year-old man, with generalized exantema and suspicion of roseola infantum, presented discomfort and hiperemia on the right eye and labial vesicular injuries. Diagnosis through the PCR technique showed that the labial and ocular injuries were produced by herpes simples and varicela-zoster virus respectively.
