Detection of HHV-6 genome positive endothelial cells in the spleen from a patient with Hodgkin's disease. HHV-6 was detected by monoclonal antibodies to the gp110 late antigen which detects only the A strain of the virus (H-AR-4). The staining indicates that HHV-6 is replicating in the endothelial cells and is of the A-strain which has been later confirmed by PCR.
