Abstract

Herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) infection was one of the first opportunistic infections identified among patients with AIDS. In the literature there are many data suggesting that the natural history of HSV-2 infection is altered in HIV-HSV-2 co-infected patients. Furthermore, a relationship between HIV seropositivity and HBV infection because of their analogous way of transmission is also described. We report the case of a 37-year-old patient who suffered from multiple painful ulcerative lesions of the perianal region. Laboratory examination showed positivity for HIV and HBV infections. In HIV-positive patients perianal HSV-2 can have atypical manifestations, especially if co-infection by Candida albicans occurs.
