About associated conditions for HTLV-1:

Associated conditions are those which appear statistically related, but do not have a clear cause or effect relationship. Whereas the complications are caused by HTLV-1, and underlying causes may be causes of HTLV-1, the following list shows associated conditions that simply appear with higher frequency in people who have HTLV-1. In some cases, there may be overlap between this list and risk factors for HTLV-1. People with HTLV-1 may be more likely to get a condition on the list of associated conditions, or the reverse may be true, or both. Whether they are causes of, caused by, or simply coincidentally related to HTLV-1 is not always clear. For general information, see Associated Condition Misdiagnosis.
