Introduction: This study research purpose is to analyze the infectious diseases with viral ethiology which have also gingival-oral clinic symptoms. Aim: This study had evaluated, from clinical and statistic point of view, the oral symptoms caused by
infectious viral diseases and their association with the systemic manifestations, paraclinic lab results and demographic statistics.
Material and Method: We studied 68 cases of herpetic gingivo-stomatitis (infected with HSV 1). All these cases were treated in Infectious Diseases Clinical Hospital of Iasi during 1st of January 2005 and 31st of December 2007.
Clinical oral investigations took place in Infectious Diseases Clinic together with their specialists, and also in our Periodontology Department. We analyzed the evolution of specific oral manifestation of this type of viral infection.
Results and discussions: Oral symptoms of our study group had a polymorphic character, the variety of this pathology justifying the reason of choosing this research topic. 49,8% of the study group presented specific and also non-specific oral manifestations for this
viral pathology. The most frequent lesions were the vesicular type associated or not with ulcerations. We found oral lesions of vesicular and ulceration type in 13 cases (9, 0% of total number of studied patients) examined, and in 25 cases (17% of total number of studied patients) only vesicular lesions. Conclusion: We concluded that in Moldavian population there is an increased incidence of these types of viruses with polymorphic character.
