Human T-cell Lymphotrophic Virus 1
I'm Human T-cell Lymphotrophic Virus.
I am also a retrovirus.
I'm so retro!
I transmit through blood, sexual contact and child birth.
I also target CD4 cells.
I make people more likely to get certain diseases.
I can cause leukemia.
I can get into your spinal cord.
There I cause myelopathy or even tropical spastic paraparesis.
I also get into skin, joints, lungs and eyes.
