  • BACKGROUND Kaposi's sarcoma (KS)-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) is a newly discovered virus found in all forms of KS. In the United States, KSHV infection appears to be most common amongst individuals at high-risk for KS. Preliminary data from Africa suggest that KSHV infection may be much more common in the general population. OBJECTIVE To examine the KSHV seroprevalence and age-specific patterns of infection in an African country with high rates of KS. DESIGN Cross-sectional seroprevalence… CONTINUE READING
