Abstract

Antiviral agents with demonstrated efficacy are currently available for the management of infections in children caused by the herpes viruses including herpes simples type 1 (HSV1) and type 2 (HSV2), varicella-zoster virus (VZV), and cytomegalovirus (CMV). Recently, progress has been made in the development of newer agents with enhanced activity against these viruses including resistant strains. This review focuses on the activity, clinical pharmacology, and clinical indications of antiviral agents used in the treatment of infections caused by the different herpes viruses in children.
