Among human herpes viruses, those known to cause neurological symptoms are the herpes simplex virus (HSV) types 1 and 2 and the varicella-zoster virus (VZV), which remain latent in the dorsal root ganglion. HSV causes herpes labialis, genital herpes, etc. VZV causes varicella during the primary infection, and shingles when reactivated. In this review, we present to the typical cases of each disease; in addition, we present several types of diseases that are closely related to neurological diseases.
