This image depicts a close lateral view of a patient’s right middle finger, which revealed the presence of a crop of herpes simplex vesiculopapular lesions. The manifestation of these lesions occurred subsequent to this patient’s meningococcal meningitis. It is felt that due to the physiologic stresses placed on the body as it battles a disease process, which includes a patient’s immune system, an individual who has been carrying the HSV-1, and HSV-2 viruses, can manifest a herpes outbreak in the form of characteristic vesiculopapular lesions.
