Htlv-i is closely related to htlv-II (60% of their genomes are identical).

type II: a human, single-stranded rna retrovirus from the subfamily Oncovirinae which may cause diseases such as t-cell leukaemia and t-cell lymphoma (but this has not been proven). Htlv-II is closely related to htlv i (60% of their genomes are identical).
