- Borna disease virus : Virus of the Mononegavirales species that causes Borna disease.
- Chikungunya Virus : Insect-borne virus, of the genus Alphavirus, that is transmitted to humans by virus-carrying Aedes mosquitoes.
- Cytomegalovirus : Member of the herpesvirus family that can cause serious complications in persons with weakened immune systems, and also cause a disease of infants characterized by circulatory dysfunction and microcephaly.

- Human Immunodeficiency Virus : An infectious human retrovirus, transmitted by bodily fluids, that causes AIDS.
- Human T-lymphotropic virus : Human RNA retrovirus associated with certain leukaemias and lymphomas and with demyelinating diseases such as multiple sclerosis.
- Human adenovirus : DNA viruses that cause upper respiratory tract infections, conjunctivitis, and other infections in humans.
- Human papilloma virus (HPV) : Papillomavirus that infects the epidermis and mucous membranes of humans, which cause warts, especially of the hands, feet, and genitals, with some strains believed to be a causative factor in cancer of the cervix, vagina, and vulva.

- Parvovirus B19 : Human parvovirus known for causing a childhood exanthem called fifth disease or erythema infectiosum.
- Parvovirus : Viruses of the Parvoviridae family, that contain DNA in an icosahedral protein shell and cause disease in many vertebrates, especially mammals such as dogs and cattle.

- Varicella zoster virus : The virus that causes ckickenpox and shingles.
- Variola virus : Orthopoxvirus species that cause smallpox and alastrim.
- Virology : The study of viruses, sometimes included in the field of microbiology.
- Virus (biology) : A microscopic particle that can infect the cells of a biological organism and can reproduce only with the assistance of the cells it infects.
- West Nile virus : A mosquito-borne Flavivirus causing West Nile fever and possibly encephalitis or meningitis.
