Human Herpesvirus type 8 (HHV-8) is commonly referred to as Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) due to its apparent link to the cancer of the same name. The viral DNA of HHV-8 has been detected in Kaposi's sarcoma lesions, as well as primary effusion lymphoma, a rare distinct large B-cell neoplasm, and multicentric Castleman’s disease, a lymphoproliferative disorder characterized by expanded germinal centers with vascular and B-cell proliferation.
