Disseminated Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV) may occur in immunosuppressed patients, most commonly causing visceral organ involvement and rarely presenting solely with cutaneous lesions. We report an interesting case of disseminated HSV in a 77-yearold immunocompromised man, presenting as necrotic papules and pustules with no associated systemic involvement.
