This photograph depicted the face of a patient, who had presented to a clinical setting, with this lesion on his lips, which was determined to be a case of herpes simplex. The outbreak had occurred in the wake of a pneumococcal meningitis infection. Streptococcus pneumoniae, the bacteria responsible for pneumococcal meningitis, is very common, and normally lives in the back of the nose and throat, or within the upper respiratory tract.
