Abstract A sensitive and specific polymerase chain reaction method for the detection of human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) DNA in serum or plasma has been developed. In total, 157 human serum or plasma samples were studied. HHV-6 DNA was detected in 6 (85.7\%) of 7 children with exanthem subitum, 3 (23.1\%) of 13 bone marrow transplant (BMT) recipients, 4 (22.2\%) of 18 human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-infected patients, 1 (2.6\%) of 39 patients with chronic fatigue syndrome, and none of 37 healthy adults. In the HHV-6-positive BMT recipients, HHV-6 plasma DNA was transiently detected during episodes of fever and respiratory infection. In children with exanthem subitum and in 1 HIV-infected patient, the HHV-6 strains were characterized as variant B, whereas variant A was detected in all other patients. Detection of viral DNA in serum or plasma is a marker of active infection that can be used to investigate the role of HHV-6 in human disease.
