Abstract

We report a case of fatal neonatal HSV-1 infection acquired by contact with a maternal breast lesion. Restriction endonuclease 'fingerprinting' revealed a similar pattern in the viruses isolated from the maternal breast lesion and the infant's skin lesion. The purpose of this report is to alert physicians of this potential route of transmission, especially in women experiencing primary mucocutaneous HSV infection at or near term.
