Abstract

Chromosomally integrated human herpesvirus 6 (ciHHV-6) can be transmitted via allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplantation. To date, only a few cases have been reported. Here, we report a case identified as transmission of ciHHV-6 via cord blood transplantation. Distinguishing transmission of ciHHV-6 from HHV-6 reactivation in cases with high titer of HHV-6 DNA load after transplantation is important to prevent unnecessary exposure to antiviral drugs that could be toxic.
