Multisystemic eosinophilic epitheliotropic
disease (MEED) is a rare, sporadic, and chronic wasting disease of horses, which is characterized by severe peripheral eosinophilia and eosinophilic infiltration of multiple organs (LA PERLE et al.

disease of lake trout (salvelinus namaycush): History and viral etiology.
HPV is a double-stranded epitheliotropic
16 Subsequently, several studies have supported this proposal on the basis of well proved epitheliotropic
nature of HPV, morphological similarities between oral and pharyngeal mucosa with genital epithelium and strongly established role of high risk HPV in cervical cancer.
Morbilliviruses are primarily lymphotropic and secondarily epitheliotropic
Certain types of HPV are epitheliotropic
and invade cornified squamous epithelium while some other mucosotropic types show preference for uncornified mucous membranes.
Cutaneous lymphoma is a rare condition in dogs and especially the non epitheliotropic
lymphoma characterized by subcutaneous nodules (usually of B cell origin) with rapid onset and progression is uncommon as compared to epitheliotropic
form of cutaneous lymphoma (Vail, 2006).
The causative microorganism is the orf virus, an epitheliotropic
DNA virus from the Parapoxvirus group, which generally infects sheep, goats, and various other domestic and wild ovine animals.
virus has 72 capsomers enclosing an 8 kbp-long circular DNA genome.
HPVs are small epitheliotropic
DNA viruses that infect basal layer cells in stratified squamous epithelia, inducing hyperplastic, papillomatous, verrucous and sometimes malignant squamous cell lesions in the skin and mucosae.
HPVs are exclusively epitheliotropic
, and their replication is intimately linked to the differentiation process of the host cells.
