Exanthem subitum and antibody to human herpesvirus-6

Exanthem subitum and antibody to human herpesvirus-6

Journal of Infectious Diseases 159(4): 750-752

Japanese workers have recently identified human herpesvirus-6 (HHV-6) as a cause of exanthem subitum (Abst. Hyg., 1988, 63, abst. 2990), a benign disease of infants characterized by high fever followed, a few days later, by the appearance of a faint, pink, maculopapular rash. The authors of this paper have confirmed this observation by detecting seroconversion, or rises in HHV-6 antibody titres in paired sera from a total of 20 infants.
