• To our knowledge, we present the first culturally documented case of generalized acute mucocutaneous herpes simplex type 2 in an immunosuppressed adult who died during the course of the disease. The picture of the clinical spectrum of herpetic disease in immunosuppressed patients is detailed, and the need for typing the virus, particularly in the disseminated form, and for clarifying possible differences in epidemiology, clinical expression, and prognosis is emphasized.
