Aim: To investigate the epidemiology of human herpes virus type-6 (HHV-6) among hemodialysis (HD) patients. Materials & methods: DNA was extracted from plasma samples of 149 patients undergoing HD with no history of organ transplantation from 2011 to 2013. Presence of HHV-6 was investigated by using real-time PCR. Results: Diabetes (36.2) and hypertension (28.8) were two major factors for HD. The HHV-6 DNA was identified in eight patients (5.37). Conclusion: This study is one of the few reports of HHV-6 infection among HD patients. In HD patient population, it is critical to improve standards of infection control in dialysis and expand treatment coverage. Furthermore, studies on clinical implications of HHV-6 infection in HD patients are crucial. © 2018 Future Medicine Ltd.
