Replication of Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6): Morphological Aspects
Human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) was first isolated by Salahuddin et al. (1) from the peripheral-blood leukocytes of six patients with associated lymphoproliferative disorders, and subsequently by Lopez et al. (2) and other research groups (3, 4) from individuals seronegative as well as individuals seropositive for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). Yamanishi et al. (5) probably isolated a different strain of the same virus from the peripheral-blood lymphocytes of patients with exanthem subitum.
