New York Infant Gets Herpes From Penis Sucking Part Of Circumcision

A New York City infant contracted herpes last month as a result of an Orthodox Jewish procedure known as metzitzah b'peh (MBP) that involves orally sucking the blood off a newborn's penis after circumcision, according to the city's Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH).

The news, which came in an April 3 email alert from the New York City Bureau of Sexually Transmitted Disease Control, marks the 13th such case in New York City since 2000. Two of those infants died (including one last year), and two others have suffered brain damage as a result, according to a department alert from January.

The infant, whose parents were not named, came down with a fever a week after being circumcised and developed vesicular lesions the next day, the email stated. The city did not disclose in which hospital the infant was born.

The department email said the ritual circumciser, known as a mohel, likely transmitted the virus to the newborn child. The department said it won't sue the mohel, whose name was kept secret by the infant's parents, according to the Jewish Daily Forward.

If I have a son he will be done in this manner.  It helps seals the wound.
