We report a long-lasting (8-month) reactivation of human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) infection in child who had undergone cord blood stem cell transplantation. The reactivation was characterized by high viral loads and by immediate-early mRNA positivity. HHV-6 infection was associated with a deep depletion of CD3, while the CD4/CD8 ratio remained substantially unchanged.

Abstract

We report a long-lasting (8-month) reactivation of human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) infection in child who had undergone cord blood stem cell transplantation. The reactivation was characterized by high viral loads and by immediate-early mRNA positivity. HHV-6 infection was associated with a deep depletion of CD3, while the CD4/CD8 ratio remained substantially unchanged.
