We report a case of human herpesvirus 6 (HHV-6) encephalomyelitis in an immunocompetent patient, which was confirmed by viral amplification from cerebrospinal fluid. Cidofovir was used, followed by ganciclovir, because of an adverse effect to probenecid. The patient recovered. HHV-6 should be recognized as one of the causes of encephalomyelitis.

HIV-1 integrase (IN) is a key component of the pre-integration complex (PIC) and is involved in several steps of retrovirus replication. IN cannot perform these functions on its own and need to recruit host cell proteins to efficiently carry out the different processes. Retroviral INs are flexible proteins showing high inter-domain flexibility. This… (More)
