Three classes of human lymphotropic retroviruses, one associated with lymphoid cancer, one with AIDS, and one of uncertain disease relationship, have been discovered. From a molecular, virological, and epidemiological perspective these viruses have proved to be a rich source for developing pathobiological insights to human disease. The focus of this article will be on the epidemiology of HTLV-I and HTLV-III in relationship to disease.
