    Background The activation of mononuclear phagocytes (MPs), including monocytes, macrophages and dendritic cells, contributes to central nervous system inflammation in various neurological diseases. In HTLV-I-associated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP), MPs are reservoirs of HTLV-I, and induce proinflammatory cytokines and excess T cell Cited by: Human T-cell leukemia virus type 1 (HTLV-1) is a replication-competent human retrovirus associated with two distinct types of disease only in a minority of infected individuals: the malignancy known as adult T-cell leukemia (ATL) and a chronic inflammatory central nervous system disease HTLVassociated myelopathy/tropical spastic paraparesis (HAM/TSP).Cited by:

It helps neurologists manage patients with co-existing medical conditions, and helps internists understand and treat the neurological manifestations of patients' primary diseases. Infection with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) is known to be associated with an increased risk of neoplastic disorders, especially Kaposi's sarcoma and aggressive B-cell lymphoma for the former, and T .

HTLV-I and the nervous system: proceedings of an international meeting organized by the Departments of Neurology of Texas Tech University and La Meynard Hospital, held in Fort-de-France, Martinique, French Antilles, April[Gustavo C Román; Jean-Claude Vernant; Mitsuhiro Osame; Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center.

This collection of proceedings papers cannot serve as a coherent and systematic survey, but neurologists, psychiatrists, and internists concerned with the clinical manifestations of HTLV-1 infection will find in it a good number of individual chapters that deal with the consequential syndromes.

Infections of the nervous system are rare but life-threatening complications of systemic infections.

The human T-lymphotropic virus 1 (HTLV-1) was the first retrovirus identified, even before the human immunodeficiency virus (initially called HTLV-3). It is a delta retrovirus currently linked to various clinical manifestations, from autoimmune disease (such as tropical spastic paraparesis) to .Human T-cell leukemia virus type I (HTLV-I) was first isolated from a patient with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma in (Poiesz ).

This led to the widespread belief that similar agents would be related to other human disorders particularly ones affecting the nervous by: Adult T-cell leukemia–lymphoma is etiologically linked to the human T-cell lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I).
