A boy manifested episodes of recurrent meningitis that were attributed to herpes simplex virus-2 infection. He presented no concurrent or previous history of involvement of the genitourinary system. He exhibited headaches, dizziness, photophobia, loss of balance, and vomiting. He underwent three episodes of aseptic meningitis. The herpes simplex virus-2 etiology was confirmed by polymerase chain reaction of the cerebrospinal fluid in the last two episodes. After the third occurrence, he was treated with acyclovir. Five years have elapsed since then, without the recurrence of aseptic meningitis.
