Reactivation of HHV-6 and HHV-7 inhibits immune system and indirectly promote to other infectious agents. The article deals with a unique case repot of two repeated transplantations offibula due to congenital tibia pseudarthrosis caused by-NF-J. Results of the transplantations, related to active and latent HHV6 and HHV-7 infection in a 6 years old child are discussed in the paper.
