After one month he returned with problems pronounce, excessive salivation, pain and exofitic lesions on his tonge, which offered a goffered, bumpy, ruffled and crimped surface with erosions, ulcers and papules covered by a yellowed pseudomembrana. Cultures of fungus, bacteria or parasiten were negative. Successive biopsies were analized by 5 pathologists who have discarded any malignancy or autoimmune disease. Similar diagnostics referred "chronic inflammatory reaction". A sixth expert, referred that HSV histological details and immunomarcation with HSV-I/HSV-II antiserum corresponded to nuclear and idioplasmatic positivity. Epifluorescence and electronic microscopic certificated diagnose. Acyclovir 4g/daily, four weeks was successful. Conclusion.
