HHV-7 encephalitis as the first manifestation of immunodeficiency

Joana Rabaçal, Teresa Romão, Mafalda Teixeira, Tomás Lamas.

Abstract
Human herpesvirus 7 (HHV-7) is a T lymphotropic herpes virus that was first isolated in 1989. It's a ubiquitous virus that is present in more than 95%. Infection usually occurs in childhood and peaks at around three years of age, followed by a latent state with possible reactivation in case of immunodeficiency. The entire spectrum of clinical manifestations is yet to be determined, ranging from non-specific febrile illness, and exanthema subitum to febrile seizures.
This report refers to an apparently immunocompetent 57-year-old man who developed a status epilepticus in association with herpetic encephalitis due to HHV-7.

Key words: Encephalitis, human herpesvirus-7, adult, immunocompetent, glioblastoma multiform
