Herpesviruses are abundant in nature. Nowadays more than 100 herpes viruses are distinguished, a small amount of which occurs in humans. Herpesvirus can remain persistent in a human body for the entire lifetime causing diseases with multiple clinical implications.

It was found that HHV-8 is associated with all types of Kaposi sarcoma, including endemic African Kaposi sarcoma, classic Mediterranean Kaposi sarcoma among elderly people and transplant-related Kaposi sarcoma. The DNA of this virus is constantly detected in the tissue of AIDS-related Kaposi sarcoma, whereas it is not detected in the normal tissue of neighboring sections.
