Human Herpesvirus 6 Breakthrough Treatment
Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) is composed of two herpes viruses known as HHV-6A and HHV-6B. Almost all human beings contract the virus as a small child (by the age of two) and like most other herpes viruses, it becomes dormant until later in life. The virus is spread through saliva or possibly genital secretions. In many cases, HHV-6 infections are silent or may appear with a fever.
HHV-6A is rare and typically acquired in adulthood. It has been associated with chronic neurological conditions and is found more frequently in patients with diseases such as chronic fatigue syndrome, multiple sclerosis and rhomboencephalitis. HHV-6B is known to be the cause of the common childhood illness roseola infantum or sixth disease and the symptoms are high temperature followed by a rash just as the fever breaks.
Complications of Herpesvirus 6
Complications can arise when transplanting organs. Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) is one of the most common viruses that can cause transplant complications. Complications caused by HHV-6 may include rash and roseola, encephalitis, seizures, cognitive dysfunction, hypersensitivity, lymphadenopathy/fever, and immune suppression.
Rash and Roseola
Rash and roseola associated with Human Herpesvirus 6 can include long-term complications such as encephalitis, cognitive dysfunction, seizures, and hypersensitivity. Additional complications may include lymphadenopathy/fever and immune suppression in some patients.
Human herpesvirus 6 Encephalitis is a serious medical condition caused by inflammation of the brain, which can be due to a variety of causes. The most common cause of encephalitis is an infection with a certain type of virus, such as Human Herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6). Symptoms may include fever, severe headache, seizures, confusion, and memory loss. Other signs and symptoms may vary depending on what caused the encephalitis. Treatment for encephalitis depends upon the underlying cause but generally includes antiviral medications or other medications that target specific viruses or bacteria.We understand encephalitis can be a difficult condition to manage and that many patients can benefit from further treatment options beyond traditional medical interventions. Our team of Sunridge Medical specialists have extensive experience in treating encephalitis with the latest treatments available, tailored to each individual’s needs.
Herpesvirus 6 (HV6) is a virus that is responsible for causing seizures in some individuals. It mainly affects people with weak immune systems, such as those with AIDS or other immunodeficiencies. Seizures can occur when the virus attacks nerve cells in the brain, leading to abnormal electrical activity and uncontrolled muscle contractions. Treatment of HV6-related seizures may involve antiviral medications, anticonvulsants, or other supportive care measures depending on the individual’s condition. Sunridge Medical offers comprehensive treatment plans tailored to each patient’s needs to ensure that their seizures are effectively managed and controlled.
Lymphadenopathy is an abnormal enlargement of the lymph nodes, which are small glands located in the neck, armpits, groin, and abdomen. They are part of the body’s immune system and help fight infection by trapping and destroying harmful bacteria or viruses. Symptoms may include fever, swollen glands, fatigue, weight loss, and night sweats. In some cases, treatment may be necessary to reduce swelling and discomfort caused by lymphadenopathy/fever due to Human Herpesvirus 6. We understand that living with these symptoms can be overwhelming; however, at Sunridge Medical we have the expertise to assist you in finding relief from your symptoms.
Immune suppression occurs when the body’s immune system is weakened or unable to function properly. This can be caused by a variety of reasons, including exposure to viruses such as HHV-6. The virus primarily affects children and adults with weak immune systems, leading to complications such as fever, rash, seizures, encephalitis, and even death in some cases. In individuals who are immunocompromised, HHV-6 can cause severe immune suppression due to its ability to suppress T-cell responses. Over time, this can lead to life-threatening infections or other serious health consequences. Sunridge Medical specializes in treatments for these conditions and we take every precaution to ensure that our patients are in the safest environment possible.
