H. Gladiatorum

While searching for sumo news this evening, I learned of a new study about a variety of the herpes simplex virus that affects athletes in contact sports like sumo.

Laymen call it "scrumpox", and doctors call it Herpes Gladiatorum. As a person who loves language, I find either name entirely satisfying.
