We describe the first known case of symptomatic infection resulting from human herpesvirus-6 (HHV-6) in simultaneous pancreas-kidney transplant recipients. The role of HHV-6 in solid-organ transplant recipients is not well defined. In hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (SCT) HHV-6 may cause fever, rash, myelosuppression, interstitial pneumonitis, and encephalitis.
