Detection of HSV type-specific IgG in CSF may indicate central nervous system infection by that HSV type.
The IFA procedure for measuring IgM antibodies to HSV 1 and HSV 2 will detect both type-common and type-specific HSV antibodies. Thus, detection of antibodies to both HSV 1 and HSV 2 may represent cross-reactive HSV antibodies rather than exposure to both HSV 1 and HSV 2.
