Abstract

A review of 15 patients who tested positive for HHV-6 on the FilmArray Meningitis/Encephalitis (M/E) panel revealed that the majority were unlikely to have HHV-6 encephalitis. Interpreting HHV-6 positive results on the M/E panel requires careful clinical judgment, as this finding may be clinically insignificant for many patients.
