Primary infection results in a fever that may exceed 40 degrees Celsius and last for 3-5 days. Primary infection in children often results in fever followed by development of roseola or sixth disease. The virus exists as latent infection in lymphocytes and monocytes following the primary infection and may be reactivated in immunocompromised patients. Information from ARUP Laboratories 2007 01 08.
