Experimental acute adult T cell leukemia-lymphoma is associated with thymic atrophy in human T cell leukemia virus type I infection.

Abstract

Human T cell leukemia virus type I (HTLV-1) infection may lead to an acutely fatal adult T cell leukemia-lymphoma (ATLL), but HTLV-1-infected people usually remain asymptomatic. Why only certain HTLV-I infections lead to acute ATLL, which is characterized by leukemic infiltration of multiple organs and immune suppression, remains unknown. A readily… (More)
