Resumen

DE LIMA SPODE, Vivian  y  MINGHELLI SCHMITT, Virgínia. Study about possible routes in the transmission of Human Herpesvirus 8. Acta bioquím. clín. latinoam. [online]. 2004, vol.38, n.4, pp. 523-527. ISSN 1851-6114.

Human Herpesvirus 8 (HHV-8) or Kaposi's Sarcoma-associated Herpesvirus (KSHV) has been causally linked to Kaposi's Sarcoma (KS). Sex between men may be an important route of transmission of HHV-8, once this is the main behavioral risk factor for KS in seropositive HIV patients. However, from regions of Africa where KS was detected in children even before the advent of AIDS, other routes of transmission have been suggested.

Palabras clave : Human Herpesvirus 8 transmission; Kaposi's Sarcoma; Kaposi's Sarcoma-associated Herpesvirus.
