Résumé : Exclude herpes infection in the presence of acute oral ulcers of unknown origin, particularly in patients in poor general condition.Remember that asymptomatic HSV-1 shedding in saliva may result in an oral-genital transmission.Perform an anogenital examination and a screening for other sexually transmitted diseases when oral warts are diagnosed.Search for immunosuppression and monitor the patient (screening for a potential associated carcinoma) when there is rapid growth of oral warts.Consider all the clinical signs (systemic, skin, other mucosa, immunity...) when a patient has an enanthem or oral ulcerations.Ask for a HIV test when an oral Kaposi's sarcoma, a hairy leukoplakia or major aphthae are diagnosed.
