In history by her mother’s statement, the patient developed lesions following a severe fever. The child did not indicate other problems. Clinical examination showed swelling, vesicle lesions on lids (both eyes) and the upper lip and vesicle blister, crust and ulcerative lesions on dorsal and nasal bridge. Based on typical blister lesions of lids, nose and lip, the diagnosis was herpes simplex lesions. In a newborn, severely malnourished infants and immunocompromised persons, a serious infection may occur. The purpose of this clinical presentation is to report a severe and unusual clinical case of herpes simplex infection in an immunocompetent child.
