There are several diseases caused by viruses that produce vesicular eruptions on the skin, on the mucous membranes, or on both that may be confused with herpes simplex virus infections. The eczema caused by vaccinia may be distinguished from that caused by herpes simplex virus by the type of vesicles induced, as well as by the absence of intranuclear inclusions in the cells present in these vesicles. Varicella infection is best differentiated from herpes infection by virus isolation.
