Interchangeable: Herpes simplex viruses =hsv 1 & 2 are interchangeable when it comes to causing genital herpes. So it is the location of symptomotogy that dictates whether herpes is a std not the HSV virus#. ...Read more

My HSV 1 + 2 IgM 0.50 and HSV 1 + 2 IgG serum 24.28 but not mention which hsv 1 or 2 I little confused why they not mention?? I am from India

My HSV 1 + 2  IgM 0.50  and  HSV 1 + 2 IgG serum 24.28  but not mention which hsv 1 or 2  I little confused  why they not mention?? I am from India

HSV blood tests: You have HSV1, 2, or both. Ignore the IgM results. HSV IgM antibody in theory detects early infection, but the test is inherently very unreliable. Also, IgM antibody never tells HSV1 from HSV2. Some IgG antibody tests also do not differentiate HSV1 from 2, and that seems to be the case here. Ask your doctor about having a type specific IgG test that accurately measures antibody to both HSV1 & 2. ...Read more

From LabCorp HSV 1 IgG type spec <0.91 HSV 2 IgG type spec 14.20 Meaning? Is 14.20 bad/high? Should I retest? No outbreak so far.

Herpes type 2: You carry herpes simplex type 2-------genital herpes. It is very common and most people who have it have no symptoms. Even though they have no symptoms, or fail to recognize subtle symptoms or non-genital lesions, they may transmit the virus to others. You do not have herpes simplex type 1, which is not common. Most people carry hsv 1 without symptoms. This is important to intimate partners. Disc ...Read more

Neck CT "small cortical defect along the anterior aspect of the dens just below the anterior arch of C1 with adjacent bone or calcific density." Platelets - 487. ANA is neg. RA Factor - neg. C-Reactive Prot, Quant - 79.6. Sedimentation Rate-West - 47?

Lab results: hello ~ there is no history so impossible to comment. The CRP is non-specific and slightly up and ESR is non specific and slightly raised. Luckily the ANA and RA negative. The changes at ant ramus C2 and dens are nonspecific possibly due to osteo-arthritis. (ANA and RA shd not be routine labs!) If mets or myeloma in dd do bone scan. thanks ...Read more

My Hsv 1 & 2 IgG is 5.88 index value and HSV 1&2 IgM is 0.11. Please tell me what does it mean?

Herpes: Your test results indicate that you were exposed to Herpes virus at some point in your life, not sure when. The low IgM might suggest that it's not recent exposure, but IgM in this virus is not very accurate or useful. Your test did not specify whether your exposure came from type 1 or type 2 or both. If you have an outbreak ask your doctor for treatment medication. ...Read more

Probably have HSV2: You probably have HSV1, but so do almost half of all adults, usually no big deal. Probably also have HSV2 (i.e. genital herpes) but maybe not. 1.1 is technically positive for HSV2, but most infected people have results over 3.0. Since 2.86 is close to that, most likely it's real. Genital herpes often causes no symptoms but still sexually transmissible. See an STD or infectious diseases specialist. ...Read more

Follicular hyperplasia with active germinal centre and sinus histiocytosis. Level 2 cervical lymph node 2.1 x 0.9 x 0.5cm.  What are the causes?

Nothing of concern: This is a benign biopsy of your lymph node. The reported changes are of no consequence. Although it is not possible to be certain about what caused these changes, infection/s in the throat(which are very common in healthy adults) is the most likely cause. ...Read more
