HSV-1 is usually associated with infection in the oropharyngeal area and eyes, while HSV-2 causes mostly genital and neonatal infections. However, the tissue specificity is not absolute, HSV-2 can be isolated occasionally from the oropharynx and 5-10% of primary genital infections may be caused by HSV-1. The antibody of the IgM class is produced during the first 2-3 weeks of infection with HSV and exists only transiently in most patients.
