Abstract

Anogenital ulcers caused by herpes simplex virus type 2 (HSV-2) are associated with an increased risk of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) transmission. When compared with clinician examination, HIV/HSV-2 coinfected men who have sex with men are frequently unaware of anogenital ulcers. These data highlight the importance of condom use and the need for new HSV-2 prevention strategies.
