Oral herpes simplex virus infection is a common complication of cardiac transplantation. Lesions are secondary to reactivation of the virus, are atypical in appearance, and can involve any oral and perioral surface. Diagnosis on clinical grounds is difficult and should be confirmed with laboratory testing. A case report and review of the literature are presented to support the features of this infection.
