Human polyomavirus 6 (HPyV6) is most often detected at the skin surface of healthy individuals. Here, we demonstrate for the first time that HPyV6 also infects internal tissues. We provide direct evidence of HPyV6 infecting a lymph node of a patient with an angiolymphoid hyperplasia with eosinophilia or Kimura disease.
