In search of a possible involvement of viral agents in angioimmunoblastic lymphadenopathy with dysproteinaemia (AILD) and AILD-like lymphoma (AILD-L), we studied the presence of human herpesvirus-6 (HHV-6) in the lymph node biopsies of 12 cases by polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Given the rarity of this lymphoproliferative disorder, we investigated archival specimens, consisting of formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded tissues, obtained from patients with a clinical and histologic diagnosis of… CONTINUE READING
