Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) one of seven currently known human cancer virus, is also the eighth human herpesvirus. Kaposi's sarcoma, caused by the virus, is common in AIDS patients, primary effusion lymphoma, and some types of multicentric Castelman's disease. Moritz Kaposi discovered the blood vessel tumor, in 1872, which would eventually be names Kaposi's sarcoma.

The Herpesviridae, a large family of DNA viruses, causes disease in animals and humans. Members of this family are known as herpesviruses. They all share a common structure where they are composed of relatively large double-stranded, linear DNA genomes encoding 100-200 genes encased within an icosahedral protein cage called the capsid. The whole particle is known as a virion. They are all nuclear-replicating. When a viral particle contacts a cell with specific types of receptor molecules...
Herpes zoster (or zoster), is known as shingles or zona and is a viral disease characterized by painful skin rash with blisters in a limited area on one side of the body. Initial infection causes chickenpox. Once chickenpox is over the virus remains in the body and can cause shingles. It can become latent in the nerve cell bodies and sometimes in the dorsal root, cranial nerve, or autonomic ganglion. Years after initial infection, another breakout can cause a painful rash. The rash usually...
Herpes simplex virus 1 and 2 (HSV-1 and HSV-2), are two members of the virus family Herpesviridae that infect humans. They are both ubiquitous and contagious and can spread when an infected person is producing and shedding the virus. Symptoms include watery blisters in the skin, mouth, lips, or genitals. Lesions usually heal with a scab characteristic of herpetic disease. HSV-1 and -2 remain latent in the body hiding from the immune system in the cell bodies of nerves. Some people do...
The Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), or human herpesvirus 4, is part of the herpes family and causes cancer. It is one of the most common viruses in humans and is correlated to the pathogenesis of multiple autoimmune diseases including rheumatoid arthritis, systemic lupus, dermatomyositis, and multiple sclerosis. It can also cause several lymphoproliferative disorders and cancers. Most people gain adaptive immunity after being infected by EBV. In the US half of all five-year-olds and 90-95% of...
