A group of gene products similarly related in structure and function and of shared genetic descent. When the virus is transmitted to man it causes an acute encephalitis or encephalomyelitis, which is nearly always fatal. Les virus présentent de grandes différences dans la composition en bases et dans l’arrangement des séquences de leur ADN mais ils ont en commun plusieurs propriétés biologiques dont l’aptitude à demeurer latente chez leurs hôtes. When the virus is transmitted to man it causes an acute encephalitis or encephalomyelitis, which is nearly always fatal. Herpes Simplex Virus 1 The type species of SIMPLEXVIRUS causing most forms of non-genital herpes simplex in humans. Primary infection occurs mainly in infants and young children and then the virus becomes latent in the dorsal root ganglion. Herpes A recurring viral skin infection characterized by clusters of small blisters.

Typically, sores are located near the mouth (fever blisters or cold sores) or in the genital region (genital herpes). When the virus is transmitted to man it causes an acute encephalitis or encephalomyelitis, which is nearly always fatal. Herpes Zoster Ophthalmicus Virus infection of the Gasserian ganglion and its nerve branches characterized by pain and vesicular eruptions with much swelling. New York: Raven Press, 1993, pp. Soc. Herpes Zoster, Ocular Virus infection of the Gasserian ganglion and its nerve branches characterized by pain and vesicular eruptions with much swelling. Ocular involvement is usually heralded by a vesicle on the tip of the nose.

exp. I. DOWDLE, AND R. J. 775, IARC, Lyon, France. A., and Subak-Sharpe, J. Herpesvirus 1 (alpha), Suid A species of VARICELLOVIRUS producing a respiratory infection (PSEUDORABIES) in swine, its natural host.

Ocular involvement is usually heralded by a vesicle on the tip of the nose. Herpesvirus 1 (alpha), Cercopithecine A species of SIMPLEXVIRUS that causes vesicular lesions of the mouth in monkeys. Herpesvirus 1 (alpha), Human The type species of SIMPLEXVIRUS causing most forms of non-genital herpes simplex in humans. When the virus is transmitted to man it causes an acute encephalitis or encephalomyelitis, which is nearly always fatal. It is probably the causative agent of ADENOMA or ADENOCARCINOMA in the kidneys of certain frogs. Herpesvirus 1 (alpha), Human The type species of SIMPLEXVIRUS causing most forms of non-genital herpes simplex in humans. Primary infection occurs mainly in infants and young children and then the virus becomes latent in the dorsal root ganglion.

Herpesvirus 1, Caprine A genus of the family HERPESVIRIDAE, subfamily ALPHAHERPESVIRINAE. Herpesvirus 1, Ranid A species of the family HERPESVIRIDAE, whose genus is so far unassigned. It is probably the causative agent of ADENOMA or ADENOCARCINOMA in the kidneys of certain frogs. Herpesvirus 1, Suid A species of VARICELLOVIRUS producing a respiratory infection (PSEUDORABIES) in swine, its natural host. It also produces an usually fatal ENCEPHALOMYELITIS in cattle, sheep, dogs, cats, foxes, and mink. Herpesvirus 1, Swine A species of VARICELLOVIRUS producing a respiratory infection (PSEUDORABIES) in swine, its natural host. Herpesvirus 1, Human The type species of SIMPLEXVIRUS causing most forms of non-genital herpes simplex in humans.

Primary infection occurs mainly in infants and young children and then the virus becomes latent in the dorsal root ganglion. It is thought to be the causative agent of INFECTIOUS MONONUCLEOSIS and is strongly associated with oral hairy leukoplakia (LEUKOPLAKIA, HAIRY), BURKITT LYMPHOMA, and other malignancies. Herpesvirus 4, Human The type species of LYMPHOCRYPTOVIRUS, subfamily GAMMAHERPESVIRINAE, infecting B-cells in humans. It is thought to be the causative agent of INFECTIOUS MONONUCLEOSIS and is strongly associated with oral hairy leukoplakia (LEUKOPLAKIA, HAIRY), BURKITT LYMPHOMA, and other malignancies. Smith J.W., Adams E., Melnick J.L. Infection with Cytomegalovirus is also seen as an opportunistic infection in AIDS. Herpesvirus 5, Human A genus of the family HERPESVIRIDAE, subfamily BETAHERPESVIRINAE, infecting the salivary glands, liver, spleen, lungs, eyes, and other organs, in which they produce characteristically enlarged cells with intranuclear inclusions.

Harb. Herpesvirus B A species of SIMPLEXVIRUS that causes vesicular lesions of the mouth in monkeys. L., MODER, F. Herpesvirus simiae A species of SIMPLEXVIRUS that causes vesicular lesions of the mouth in monkeys. Stiehm, R. Quant. It also produces an usually fatal ENCEPHALOMYELITIS in cattle, sheep, dogs, cats, foxes, and mink.

Herpesvirus Suis A species of VARICELLOVIRUS producing a respiratory infection (PSEUDORABIES) in swine, its natural host. Herpesvirus simiae A species of SIMPLEXVIRUS that causes vesicular lesions of the mouth in monkeys. Herpetomonas A suborder of monoflagellate parasitic protozoa that lives in the blood and tissues of man and animals.

It is thought to be the causative agent of INFECTIOUS MONONUCLEOSIS and is strongly associated with oral hairy leukoplakia (LEUKOPLAKIA, HAIRY), BURKITT LYMPHOMA, and other malignancies. Species of this suborder may exist in two or more morphologic stages formerly named after genera exemplifying these forms – amastigote (LEISHMANIA), choanomastigote (CRITHIDIA), promastigote (Leptomonas), opisthomastigote (Herpetomonas), epimastigote (Blastocrithidia), and trypomastigote (TRYPANOSOMA). Herpesvirus, Simian A species of SIMPLEXVIRUS that causes vesicular lesions of the mouth in monkeys. When the virus is transmitted to man it causes an acute encephalitis or encephalomyelitis, which is nearly always fatal. Herpesvirus, Burkitt The type species of LYMPHOCRYPTOVIRUS, subfamily GAMMAHERPESVIRINAE, infecting B-cells in humans. It is thought to be the causative agent of INFECTIOUS MONONUCLEOSIS and is strongly associated with oral hairy leukoplakia (LEUKOPLAKIA, HAIRY), BURKITT LYMPHOMA, and other malignancies.
