DNA of HSV-1, VZV, HHV-6 and EBV in serum samples was detected using molecular biology techniques. Viral level of HSV-1 and VZV was constantly increasing despite routine applied oral acyclovir therapy. These findings underline the value of real-time PCR technique used in current therapeutic procedures and for monitoring of antiviral therapy with nucleoside analogs. We found that real-time PCR is a useful tool in detection and monitoring of disseminated herpesviral infection, especially for the detection of low-copy viraemia in clinical specimens.
