Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCV or MCPyV). This recently discovered virus (in 2008) causes around 80% of Merkel cell carcinomas. Although lymphocytes may serve as a tissue reservoir for MCV infection, only rare (approximately 2%) of hematolymphoid malignancies show evidence for MCPyV infection by DNA PCR. Poxviruses ●● Molluscum contagiosum virus. Infection involves the skin and occasionally the mucous membranes. There are four types of MCV (MCV-1–4). Skin lesions are self-limited and pearly in appearance with an umbilicated (dimpled) center.
