Figure 1: The algorithm proposed by Hanson et al. to rule out herpes simplex virus infection of the central nervous system. Patients who meet this criteria would not receive a test for the detection of herpes simplex virus DNA (i.e., PCR) in cerebrospinal fluid. *The original paper listed “transplant,” which we interpreted as solid-organ transplant to include patients with nonimmunosuppressive transplants (e.g., cornea). DNA: deoxyribonucleic acid, PCR: Polymerase chain reaction
