Expression of potentially oncogenic HHV-8 genes in an EBV-negative primary effusion lymphoma occurring in an HIV-seronegative patient.

Abstract

Primary effusion lymphoma (PEL) is a novel lymphoproliferative disorder associated with human herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) infection. Most PELs develop in HIV-seropositive individuals and are nearly always positive for Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), a finding which obscures the role of HHV-8 in lymphomagenesis. However, rare EBV-negative PEL cases occurring in HIV… (More)
