This case takes place in South Carolina and involves a female patient who presented to her Ob/Gyn during her third trimester of pregnancy for blood work. She was tested on a Thursday and subsequently gave birth two days later. The delivery progressed without complication and the mother and infant were both discharged. Less than a week later, the mother presented to the ER with her child. The child had a rash and a fever, and was admitted to the hospital for evaluation. Twelve days later the child was diagnosed with herpes. Unbeknownst to the mother, her blood work came back positive for herpes the day after delivery yet her Ob/Gyn never informed her or the pediatrician in the hospital. The child suffered debilitating side effects and now has cerebral palsy.
