There is substantial evidence that infectious agents play a causal role in a variety of human malignancies. These cancers include the liver, cervix, stomach, nasopharynx, bladder, and bile duct as well as Kaposi sarcoma (KS) and several lymphomas. This chapter summarizes the biological and epidemiologic features of each of the major oncogenic infections, beginning with the viruses, followed by H. pylori, and with a brief summary of the relevant parasites.

Keywords:   infectious agents, cancer risk, malignancy, viruses, infection, Helicobacter pylori
