Upon arriving at the hospital, the doctors saw dozens of little ulcers at the back of Briony’s throat. They believed those ulcers were just cold sores, so Briony was given some antibiotics for a throat infection and sent home. She was asked to come back after a week for a follow-up appointment.

It turns out Briony was suffering from more than just a sore throat. She had suffered massive organ failure and died as a result of herpes simplex virus. Briony’s doctor said that he had only ever seen the virus present on the tongue, gums, and lips of the patient, and never in the back of the throat.
