The advent of acyclovir has accentuated the problem of diagnosis and particularly the need for brain biopsy in patients with suspected herpes simplex encephalitis. U.S.A. and U.K. practices are contrasted and the current U.K. study of acyclovir in herpes simplex encephalitis is mentioned in which retrospective and relatively non-invasive methods of diagnosis are employed.
