Diagnosis and Management
Rosela Infantum has a very characteristic presentation and a diagnosis can usually be made on clinical grounds alone.
Therefore very few virology laboratories offer a diagnostic service for HHV-6 or HHV-7 infection.
The technique for virus isolation is complicated and thus not practicable as a routine diagnostic procedure.
Therefore serology is the mainstay of diagnosis where specific IgM and IgG are detected.
There is no specific antiviral treatment for HHV-6 infection.
