We analyzed 3 hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) recipients with inherited chromosomally integrated human herpesvirus-6 (inherited CIHHV-6). Cases 1 (inherited CIHHV-6A) and 2 (inherited CIHHV-6B) were inherited CIHHV-6 recipients. Case 3 received bone marrow from a donor with inherited CIHHV-6B. Following HSCT, HHV-6B was isolated from Case 1. HHV-6A and -6B messenger RNAs were detected in Cases 1 and 3.
