Abstract

Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) is a common sexually transmitted viral pathogen world wide which can cause devastating morbidity and mortality in foetus and newborn. While intra-partum transmission is being the commonest, trans-placental infection is rare with a higher mortality rate despite of proper management. Congenital herpes presents as a classical triad of cutaneous, neurological, and ophthalmic manifestations. In this article, we discuss a case of post-treatment trans-placental congenital herpes infection with a comprehensive literature which we believe the first reported case in Sri Lanka.
