dc.description.abstract This article is a review of clinical aspects of human type 1 T-cell lymphotropic virus (HTLV-1), with emphasis in relevant information for Peruvian physicians. After showing some virological and epidemiological data, transmission is reviewed, as well as diseases associated with this infection. The following associated conditions are specifically discussed: adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma, tropical spastic paraparesis, strongyloidiasis, scabies, tuberculosis, infective dermatitis, and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) coinfection. This review allows us to conclude that HTLV-1 is an endemic infection in Peru and that it is related to diseases with different patho-physiological mechanisms, including inflamatory syndromes, lymphoproliferative diseases and opportunistic infections. en
