The relation between herpes simplex virus and immune system are the aim of some studies in these last years. The phenomenon of herpes recurrences has induced some scientists to look for an imbalance in the immune response to the virus. Some data have shown an alterations in the mo-tility of polimorfonuclear cells,1 an alteration in the ability of lymphocyte to respond to HSV in vitro and to produce lymphokine ,2–8 an alteration in natural killer citotoxicity 9.
