Herpes simplex virus type 2 was demonstrated to be the cause of a recurrent painful and disabling digital infection in a young man. It is possible that this was originally venereally transmitted. With increasing incidence of genital herpes infections, digital herpetic infections may become more common in the nonmedically employed community.
