Oro-genital aphthous stomatitis: A case of mistaken herpes simplex virus type 2
Denelle Mohammed M. D.
Aphthous stomatitis can affect up to 60% of the population. The clinical presentation can be similar to other causes of oral ulceration such as Herpes Simplex Virus. As a result, clear indications of each must be diagnosed appropriately. I report a case of a 28-year-old female with oro-genital aphthous stomatitis misdiagnosed with Herpes Simplex Virus Type 2. The appropriate workup and treatments for aphthous stomatitis are discussed.
