Abstract

The clinical spectrum of retroviruses is expanding rapidly. Human T- cell lymphotropic virus type I (HTLV-I) was the first retrovirus to be described, and its role had been established in adult T-cell leukemia/lymphoma and tropical spastic paraparesis. We report the case of a 35-year-old woman with HTLV-I and the unusual combination of cutaneous T- cell lymphoma, tropical spastic paraparesis, cerebral vasculitis, and protein S deficiency. We discuss the relationship of all her diseases to HTLV-I.
