Has anyone ever died of neonatal disseminated herpes ?

Yes: This is the expected outcome for untreated cases (85%).Response to treatment is variable & factors in early recognition & agressive rx. Those infected prior to labor & delivery are the least likely to respond, while those who acquire the germ during delivery are more likely to improve with rx.
