Abstract

We report a case of Herpes Simplex virus type 1 primary infection unexpectedly complicated by aseptic meningitis without encephalitis sign among an 11 old child. The patient recovered without any sequala. HSV-1 meningitis is exceptional but could be more frequently observed linked to the epidemiological changes in HSV infections.
