Abstract

HHV-6 is the etiological agent of Exanthema subitum, and its role in human infection is well known. Recently, molecular diagnostics tools showed for HHV-6 new pathogenetic features and new clinical implication. The present paper highlights recent knowledge on HHV-6 infection and presents a number of results concerning HHV-6 infection in children who had undergone BMT and concerning the roles of endothelial cells as viral reservoir.
