Exams and Tests
Since the diagnosis of roseola is generally made by the characteristic history and physical examination findings, laboratory studies and/or radiologic evaluation are rarely necessary. In the unusual case, laboratory testing exists to demonstrate elevation of antibodies to HHV-6 (or HHV-7). This may be necessary if the patient's immune system is compromised.
