HTLV
      #18565 - 06/20/01 03:19 PM

What is it and how do you get it? I called my local health center they didn't know about it. The CDC said it is so rare they don't have much info and the GMHC didn't know anything about it. However I see it referred to on this site alot! How do you get tested for it. Can it be passed through oral sex?

HTLV is a virus that can cause leukemia in some people. It sometimes comes up in discussions of hiv because
hiv was at first mistakenly assumed to be a form of htlv. A brief summary about htlv can be found at:

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my post.
