Gastric infection with herpes simplex virus is rare, with only two cases previously reported. At the time of the previous reports, the virus could not be cultured, and the diagnosis was based on histological findings. Two cases of culture positive herpes simplex virus gastritis are presented, emphasizing the importance of routine gastric biopsies and vital cultures in immunodeficient patients with dyspeptic symptoms.
