Many people have no other complications other than the infection but some may develop ear infections s=and sinus infections. There are some other, rare, infections that can be chronic. Feline Viral Rhinotracheitis is a severe upper respiratory infection caused by feline herpesvirus. And more recently, by documenting that identical HIV env sequences always have identical integration sites in the human genome, and conversely that diverse HIV env sequences always have different integration sites, we proved that HIV-infected cells develop into long-lived clones that persist during ART ( Science, 2014 ).

A total of 9,582 TB cases (a rate of 3.0 cases per 100,000 persons) were reported in the United States in 2013. Multiple sclerosis is believed to be an autoimmune disease that affects both the brain and spinal cord of the central nervous system. Patients may have neurologic deficits and complications such as local cerebritis, cerebral abscesses, and septic dural venous thromboses may occur. Continued monitoring of these HPV genotypes is important. Many foodborne pathogens tend to bring about what would be more commonly thought of as an illness than a disease, since in everyday language the latter term implies a long-term affliction, whereas food poisoning usually lasts for a week or so. (Still, some forms of food poisoning can be fatal.) Bacterial contamination may occur when food is not cooked thoroughly, is left unrefrigerated, is prepared by an infected food handler, or otherwise is handled in an unsanitary or improper fashion. (The case of Typhoid Mary, discussed near the conclusion of this essay, is an extreme example of this form of transmission.) Additionally, diseases may be transferred by vectors—animals (usually insects) that carry microorganisms from one person to another.

Thus, a contagious disease is a subset of infectious disease that is especially infective or easily transmitted. This pathway provides a non-immunological auxiliary defense system that can also operate in the protection from conventional (non-stealth adapted) viruses, including herpes simplex virus (HSV), herpes zoster virus (HZV) and human papillomaviruses (HPV). Acyclovir is a relatively benign medication and, therefore, when herpes simplex encephalitis is suspect, acyclovir should be started immediately, even prior to beginning diagnostic tests because the morbidity and mortality due to this destructive encephalitis poses a much greater risk than the therapy.
