Castleman's disease is a rare complication after LT and is associated with HHV8 reactivation or new infection.
To date, this is the first study that analyzed the presence of all eight types of human herpesviruses (HSV-1, HSV-2, EBV, CMV, VZV, HHV6, HHV7, and HHV8) in the saliva of subjects with peri-implantitis.
Diagnostic criteria of TAFRO syndrome [7] include presence of histological criteria (compatible with pathological findings of lymph node as TAFRO-iMCD and negative LANA-1 for HHV8), three of five major criteria (thrombocytopenia, anasarca, fever, reticulin fibrosis, and organomegaly), and one of two minor criteria (hyper/normoplasia of megakaryocytes in bone marrow or high levels of serum ALP without markedly elevated serum transaminase) which are needed to meet the diagnosis of TAFRO syndrome.
It has morphologic and immunophenotypic characteristics that distinguish it from the other HHV8 lymphoproliferative disorders.
Os estudos que demonstram associacoes do sarcoma de Kaposi em heterossexuais ainda sao escassos, o que dificulta a discussao a respeito da relacao entre o sexo, HIV/AIDS, SK e o HHV8. (10,30,31)
Adrenal tumors found almost exclusively in HIV patients include Kaposi's sarcoma which is secondary to coinfection with the oncogenic human herpes virus type 8 (HHV8) and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (high-grade malignant B phenotype) which could be secondary to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) [23,24].
The most important related viral infections are Human Herpes virus 8 (HHV8), Human T-lymphotropic virus 1 (HTLV-1), and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).7 EBV has been implicated in the pathogenesis of numerous human lymphoproliferative disorders, as Hodgkin's lymphoma, nasopharyngeal carcinoma, post transplantation lymphoproliferative Disease, and T-cell and Natural killer cell lymphoma.

NHL is more prevalent in cases of immune suppressive conditions such as viral infections (HTLV-1, EBV, HHV8, HCV, and AIDS) and drug usage (TNF-alfa inhibitors, chemotherapy) and in dye and metal industry workers and occupations that involve pesticides.5-8 We report a concomitant occurrence of arsenic keratosis and NHL in a Caucasian man.
Human herpesvirus type 8 (HHV8), also known as Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus, is a human gamma herpesvirus that underlies the pathogenesis of Kaposi's sarcoma, primary effusion lymphoma and multicentric Castleman's disease.
Ten combined studies, with 5,716 male and 4,708 female participants, respectively, were included in meta-analysis of association between sex and HHV8 infection (online Technical Appendix Figure, panel B).
